cell phone etiquette...
« on: June 09, 2021, 11:08:25 PM »

1) Do not hold your smart phone in front of your face and yell into it while it is on speaker as you are shopping in a store.
 
2) Do not turn your music up, and hold your smart phone in front of your face and scream into it while ordering vital car parts.

Better yet, don't do anything with the speaker out in public.  Get some head phones or ear bud.

Ah... Then you have someone walking around yelling into their phone, with earbuds, and you are only hearing one side of the conversation.
