Mobile Phone Manners
KISS Principle Works Wonder
Whenever you’re in public, always try to 'keep itshort and simple' (KISS, get it!). Take the message and ask politely if you can talk to the person later on. If it’s an urgent and unavoidable call, talk briefly and in a low voice, so that you don’t disturb people around you.
No Loud Ringtones Please
Keep your phone in vibration or silent mode while you are at any public place and switch it off at any place where it can create nuisance. Never ever use your phone in hospitals, theatres, place of worship or any other place where it’s prohibited.
Don’t Scream or Shout
While talking on the phone, keep your voice lower than usual. In any condition, do not shout or scream in your phone, to convey your message. If the network coverage is poor, you can always send an SMS, asking the other person to call later. Don’t let your phone be a distraction for others.
Don’t Spill You Personal Beans
Listening to your personal problems is a big put off for people. So, discussing personal things in public should be avoided at all costs. When you talk personal matter over phone, not only do you let a complete stranger overhear your delicate matters, but also stand as a complete fool in their eyes.
Respect Other's Space
Remember that you belong to the society and even if you’re alone at a public place, you are not aloof. So, always respect the space of the people around you. Talk in low voice and always excuse yourself before taking your phone.
Mind Your language
Language is the most important thing, while talking in public. Even if you’re talking to a person whom you’re very comfortable with, keep it formal in front of others. Don’t use offensive words. Even if you’re talking to your better half, postpone the romance for sometime.
