|Two new rules I propose to be added to the Universal Unwritten Code of Common Courtesy:
You'd think these would go without saying, but you'd be wrong. #technology
- Don't answer your phone during a meal with other people. If you're by yourself, go for it. But if you're eating a meal with other people, eat the meal and enjoy the people.
- Don't call a person on their personal cell phone for work reasons. It's one thing if you're traveling together and you need to coordinate when you're eating dinner. It's another thing to call a person on their cell phone while they're on vacation or somehow otherwise absent from work. Nothing is ever important enough to disrupt a vacation.
