Why can't people be more considerate?
I was at a training today and realized people do not know how to use their phones.
Specifically their smart phones...
because even though the trainers requested for
EVERYONE TO TURN THEIR PHONES OFF...
people's phones continued to buzz, ping, boing
and make every other noise you can imagine except silence and or vibration.
In all honesty, it was annoying as heck trying to listen to the trainers
while people's phones were going off every few seconds.
It's not only inconsiderate, disrespectful but also rude.
One lady had no clue how to use her phone.
She had the hardest time trying to turn off whatever show she was watching.
I felt like screaming, "Learn to use your phone!"
I can appreciate there are a million and one buttons on most smart phones
and it can be difficult to learn each function.
However, there are manuals that teach us how to use each button.
And MOST times, the easiest functions are the off, on and vibrate buttons.
Usually on the face of the phone or on the side.
Trust me, it's there!
I work with one lady who NEVER turns off her phone during staff meetings.
Another one whose phone must be scheduled to ring at a certain time
because it goes off around the same time each week.
Another one whose phone goes off during church.
Every. Single. Sunday!
Is it really that difficult to turn your phone off at certain times?!
I mean at least put it on silent, vibrate or mute.
Just to be courteous!
I have a Smart Phone and learned to use all the buttons
because that's just the right thing to do.
If I am going to own something, it's important i know how to use.
And i would encourage everyone
(not any of my blogger buddies but the ladies at the training, work and church)
to learn the functions of your Smart Phone at least the off, on and vibrate buttons.
I'm just saying...turn off your phone & be considerate!!
