Cell phone etiquette seems like a dying trend, doesn't it? I understand that everyone has different ideas on what is appropriate or inappropriate - but common manners seem to be forgotten by many cell phone users today.

Like right now, I'm sure you can think of a ?loud talker? in your life that doesn't answer the phone with a simple "hello." Instead, they answer the phone with a "YO!" or a "HAHA... SUP MAN?"

The widespread usage of text messaging has made this even worse! Some people never stop texting. I have friends that will text me, constantly, while they are out with their fiance or family or other friends. Why? I'm not really sure. I guess they're holding out hope that a better offer may come along? Or maybe they think I'm more interesting? If that's so, I appreciate it. But really, that seems to be pretty rude to the person on the other side.

I found the comic included above online... and I think it serves as a kind reminder of some basic cell phone etiquette. I think we all could take a second to look it over.

Personally, I highly suggest sharing this comic below with people in your life that need a helpful hint on how to improve their cell phone etiquette this year.

I found this comic on the blog of Communications Electronics, a cell phone store in my area. Hopefully it helps.
