Cell Phone Etiquette....

Please adopt accordingly


Never take a personal mobile call during a business meeting. This includes interviews and meetings with co-workers or subordinates.

Maintain at least a 10-foot zone from anyone while talking.

Never talk in elevators, libraries, museums, restaurants, theaters, dentist or doctor waiting rooms, places of worship, auditoriums or other enclosed public spaces, such as hospital emergency rooms or buses. And don't have any emotional conversations in public — ever.

Don't use loud and annoying ring tones that destroy concentration and eardrums. Grow up!

Never "multi-task" by making calls while shopping, banking, waiting in line or conducting other personal business.


Keep all cellular congress brief and to the point.

Use an earpiece in high-traffic or noisy locations. That lets you hear the amplification — how loud you sound at the other end — so you can modulate your voice.

Tell callers when you're on a cell phone and where you are — so they can anticipate distractions or disconnections.

Demand "quiet zones" and "phone-free areas" at work and in public venues, like the quiet cars on the Metroliner.

Inform everyone on your stored-number list that you've just adopted the new rules for mobile manners. Ask them to do likewise. Please.
