Cellphone etiquette continues to be in the news. This morning, Marylee Shrider, writing in the Bakersfield Californian, rails at people who take calls in restaurants, theaters, and other public spaces. This, after going to a movie and being disturbed by callers.
Cell phone etiquette, like cell phone technology is still evolving, but “no matter where you make or take a call, virtually all situations call for you to avoid being intrusive,” writes Peggy Post, great-granddaughter-in-law of etiquette doyen Emily Post and author of “Emily Post’s Etiquette, 17th Edition.”
Maybe the solution is to do as the french have done, and permit the use of jammers in theaters and concert halls.
