Bad Phone Etiquette ~ Really?

The mobile phone, like the craftiest of invasive species, knows no boundaries. It has crept into every inch of our lives, and spotting one in the bathroom or the bedroom can only elicit a weary response: “Really?”
According to a new survey released today, the answer across the country is a resounding—if resigned—”Yes.”
The survey, commissioned by Microsoft and conducted by Harris Interactive, confirms we’re a country full of bad mobile phone behavior. Nearly three-quarters of adults rank poor phone etiquette in their top 10 pet peeves, the survey found, but only a fraction fessed up to such behavior themselves.

    I have to admit that I take my phone to the bedroom, but that’s more to do with the ‘alarm clock’ function than anything else. I don’t have people calling or texting me in the middle of the night… If they did, I wouldn’t wake up anywhere. Dead to the world when asleep….
