Common courtesy seems to have gone out the window with cellphone usage as people attempt to function in daily activity while engaged in a conversation.
This month alone, I’ve gone through a contruction zone on a three-way stop and the flagger was talking on the cellphone and waving a coffee around… we didn’t know what the hell was going on or who had the right of way!
I went to the Dollar Store and the cashier was ringing up orders, talking to customers, answering the store phone AND talking on her cellphone. Aweful customer service, I was very insulted.
Don’t even get me started on people driving while talking on a cellphone!! It won’t surprise me in the near future, if it became illegal to chat & drive.
IMO cellphones have encouraged people to become even more self involved as they shut out everyone around them, in a very rude manner. What should cellphone etiquette be for people who seem to have no common sense or consideration??
