Cellphone rules 

by Rod Smith

1. Turn the phone off when you are in meetings, at the theater, or while you are paying for your groceries.2. The person present (in front of you) gets your attention over the person absent (at the other end of the phone).

3. Don’t text, read text messages, make or receive calls, play electronic games, when you are in a conversation with someone or having a meal with someone.

4. If you expect an “important call” that will warrant taking a call while you are engaged in another conversation, have the decency to announce your intentions ahead of time.

5. If you must use the phone in a public area, talk quietly.

6. If you happen to call a “wrong number” have the decency to apologize.

7. Turn your phone (and computer) off for the entire weekend — give your family your undivided and un-distracted attention.
