Q & A

How do you feel about someone answering their cell phone while your in a conversation with them?!

I’ve watched this, been a victim of it, and been guilty of it.  

NO MORE. I have truly decided that it is the rudest thing!  I now even get off my phone when I reach a check out counter.  I feel the person in front of you deserves your attention.... and I believe if you answer your phone when your in the middle of a conversationw ith someone else it just reflects an attitude that the call is more important than you....(now sometimes it maybe - but on the average - NOPE).   Thoughts????

    • Unless it’s an emergency call or a very important call, I also think one should wait until a conversation is finished before answering. It’s all about being 100% “here and now“.

    • I absolutely HATE  when people are on their cell's in line at the grocery store.  It really pisses me off, they keep yakking on the phone and AFTER the cashier tell's them the amount then they pull out their money or card.  Rude, rude, rude!!!!

      Same for when people are on phones at restaraunt’s.  C‘mon people, get your lazy a** away from the table and go in the ladies room or outside to talk.  Can you tell this hit’s a nerve with me?  LOL  But, seriously......

    • I hate it and I hate it when your caught behind someone in a queue .........and they are on the phone chatting rubbish and causing delays .. normally I jab them in the back and tell them very bluntly and apologise to the cashier / sales assistant that they have to serve idiots of the street - the banal rubbish I have overheard when they are causing chaos is just the limit - menopause is good for this as I usually feel a power surge and deal with it

    • I think it is rude...but there are exceptions...an important business call...a client...these would be important and all I would have to say is “Excuse me, but I have to take this important business call” happy

    • I also think that it’s rude.. If that phone call is that important they will call back or leave a message.. When I’m on the check out line or talking to someone and my phone rings.. I excuse my self and tell the person on the phone that I will call them back.. I expect respect so why not give respect happy

    • So......

      I also hate it but am understanding if they were expecting a call back. I also will answer if either of my daughters call...they trump all else especially the one in MI.

      I will say that I did sign Oprahs no phone zone for in the car

    • When I’m with someone I turn my cell phone off. If I am expecting a call I tell the person I’m with and once the call is completed, I turn the phone off again.

    • Cynthia, that’s great! happy

       I find it so annoying to stop at the grocery store after working all day and your in a hurry to get in and out and you have someone talking on the phone pushing their cart at .0005 mph in the middle of the isle and they are oblivious  to anything and everyone.

    • I will say that I will generally find out if there is blood or not involved and if not tell them I will call back when I’m done.

    • I don’t like It at all. If we are out to eat or standing In line at a store. When I’m with my friends they know not to leave their phones on cause I think It’s just rude. Thats what voice mails are for. Unless your a doctor on call or your spouse Is about due to have a baby, then I can understand. happy

    • UK Vicki, you are so cute!  Go get ‘em!

      Yes, it’s extremely rude unless there are extenuating circumstances.

      Yesterday, I was driving and saw a young woman driving her car, sitting in the middle of an intersection while talking on her phone.  The traffic light turned red, then green, then red again, as she sat still in her car in the middle of the road on her phone not moving as cars whizzed past her.  Finally, I honked at her, and she almost jumped out of her skin!  She had no idea that I was trying to cross the road.  I hope she wet her pants.  estatic
