Here are some examples of using mobile phones at the wrong time and has completely annoyed me:
- Turning on your mobile phone during a meeting, a service at church, a presentation and so on. Even with the sign 'Please turn off/silent you mobile phone', many still don't get it.
- Picking up your phone when it rings during a meeting, a service at church, a presentation and so on. It's bad enough that it's turned on, people just have to pick it up.
- Talking on the phone with an extremely loud voice. It's turned on with funny ring tone, you pick it up, at least have the courtesy to whisper. But no, some like to shout during their phone talks regardless of other people looking at them.
Honestly I wish people would just ban mobile phones during meeting, even at the most important meeting some still turn on and answer their phone. At a training that I recently went to, people's mobile phones were going on and off. Even with the trainer looking dissatisfied, people still don't get it. Then came a point when he told us to switch it off.
If you're one of those people who switch off/silent your mobile phones during a meeting, a service at church, a presentation and so on, give yourself a pat in the back. You're doing yourself and others like me a huge favour :)
