    cellphone etiquette

    Maybe we can do soething good for the world and get a few quide lines on phone etiquette. although i dispise phones a realise that i can't do without one.
    could we men* of this great forum put together some ideas and get the word out there that things have to change!!

    so just put all your phone grievances on this thread we can put the best ones together and start a telephone revolution.

    * men only, you women can make your own list, be sure to read this one though.

    1:- When calling someone, if they don't answer don't keep calling back. You have made contact, everyone has caller id so your call will be noticed, if its important leave a voicemail, but only if it is important. Also if you phone someones mobile and they don't answer don't phone the house number right afterwards, contact has again been made and you will get a reply or not as the case might be.

    3. If somebody is taking an unreasonable amount of time to answer their phone - punish them by hanging up the second they eventually answer.

    ^ They don't do that cause they don't have enough money to call, they do it because they expect you to pay and save them a few baht.

    Ring them back but have a rape alarm at the ready in your other hand.

    9. Let's have 'phone-free' zones on public transport. It happens in other countries, but then I think I just saw a pig fly past my window.

    OK, I'm cheating...this is either #10 for the men or #1 for the women (I just hate the f**king things, necessary as they are)...

    10. When the cell rings in a restaurant, either decline to answer it or ask permission/excuse yourself to take the call outside.

    Oh, yes...

    11. Don't, for God's sake, take a call during a job interview.

    And finally,


    12. Turn off the goddamn thing on the golf course.

    for your wifes peace of mind, maintain your phone on silent mode and keep it in your pocket at all times.

    and visit the toilet 20 times a day in order to reply to your 'friend's ' sms msgs

    So is your wife thick or does she just don't care that you are cheating on her, hypothetically speaking of course?

    Agree with all the above. If anybody is rude enough to answer a call amidst company whether during a meal or a pub gathering and not excuse himself I reckon that warrants throwing his plate of food or beer on the floor. I turn mine off unless I am expecting a work call and if that happens, I excuse myself and take it outside. I also hate wonkers who sit down and plonk their phone on the table like it's their personal condiment box.

    so hypothetically speaking you've never had a phone thrown at your head after she's hypothetically read some sms you forgot to delete?

    15. Do not keep saying 'hello' six or seven times to establish if there is someone on the other end. Say 'hello' once, wait for a response, if none is forthcoming, hang up.
