Shouting on Mobiles is Still Most Annoying Trait

cell_booth.jpg According to a new survey, speaking too loudly on mobile phones remains the most irritating thing about people using them in public. Cellular News reports.

quotemarksright.jpgThe easyMobile.com Modern Mobile Manners survey reveals that more than half of those questioned found loud talking more annoying than ringtones or even taking calls while at the dinner table.

Nearly two thirds of those researched ignored calls from people when they saw who it was that was calling – with more than 80% lying about it afterwards. And more than three quarters regularly answered calls while having a meal with friends and colleagues – despite 60% of those same individuals thinking this was a sign of bad manners.quotesmarksleft.jpg

Will there be any journal/log entries on your experiences? Photo or video documentation? Even a recording would be cool. Are there Adrian Piper type cards you're giving out for us to sample?

I will be logging in my daily experiences. I will not be doing video or photo documentation. I carry my Just A Gentle Reminder...cards with me at all times.
