I've wanted to talk about something for a long time. Now that Some Like It Vintage has this new forum for all things related to manners bygone and today, I'm having a lot of fun writing today's blog.
While perched in a stall, on a public toilet, does your mobile phone need to be answered? I understand that a quick trip to the W/C means you forget to turn down/off your cell. But to go ahead and feel compelled to answer it seems quite off-the-wall to me.
On many occasions, I've heard entire conversations about your bank account status, why she stole your boyfriend, why did he say that or where you were going to meet the caller for dinner. I don't need to hear any of this information while I'm doing my business. Was she answering mid-stream, between flatulent episodes? How does the toilet paper come into play?! Yes, I'm dangerously close to crossing the line with this post. But many of these women cross it everyday and don't even care.
People take the concept of a cell phone's mobility to a whole other inappropriate place. Husband has had this irritating problem happen a lot. He says he derives some satisfaction from repeated unnecessary flushes to get the guilty party to cease communication. Evil boy!
Although not a problem enduring from decades past, ridiculous mobile phone use is becoming too frequent and society is slowly but surely forgetting about basic manners and basic common sense. It's not as common as I once thought!
