Louder Than Necessary

How long have cell phones been popular? 5 years? 10 years?

I’m sure by now, people have learned cell phone etiquette. When talking on a cell, or any phone for that matter, screaming at a high decibel is not required. The cell phone is practically right next to the mouth; talking in a normal tone of voice is perfectly fine.

All too often, in public and at the workplace, people would answer the phones and talk at a level right below an ear-splitting scream. Not only does this annoy those around them, but it most likely annoys the person on the other end of the line.

In the words of Doris M. Smith, “Arguing with a fool proves there are two.”
