Mobile Phone Etiquette
Started conversation Sep 1, 1999
What is the proper thing to do when:
Your mobile rings and you are in company? Should one ignore ones guests and talk to the interloper, or should the caller expect to wait until you are free and call back?
Your mobile rings and you are at work, and it's a job offer?
Your mobile rings and you've left it in your jeans pocket, while you nip to the loo? Answer, and apologise for any unfortunate background noises? Put your fellow loo users off by having a loud conversation?
Shake, tuck and leave?
Your mobile rings, you answer it, and it wasn't yours but someone else in the room getting a call. Look around, feel foolish and put it away? Or just carry on going "Hi. Yeah. Yeah. Etc."
