Cell Phone Etiquette
According to a recent University of Michigan survey, the majority of cell phone users admit to being irritated with other people for using cell phones in a public place. 
 
  1. Put your phone on “silent” and let your voicemail take your calls during special events or business meetings.
  2. Put others first. The people you are with should take precedence over calls you want to make or receive.
  3. If you are expecting a call that can’t be postponed, alert your companions ahead of time.
  4. Don’t be guilty of “cell yell”. 
  5. Don’t discuss private matters in public places.
