Cell Phone Quiz

I was in a meeting Thursday and 2 cell phones went off (very loudly) at different times.  Each time, the person muted it without even looking at it.

WHY take it to a meeting if you aren’t going to use it?  How important does it have to be to interrupt your meeting and answer the phone?

When was the last time you used your phone for an emergency?  How many times this year have you used your phone for a ‘very’ important, time sensitive call?

Would you join my movement to leave cell phones in the car during meetings? (especially one-on-one)

  1. Will leave my cell phone in car!! But on the other hand iam happy about McCains choice, at least it is an shake up and she has done many good things for Alaska. She is not a yes woman and not afraid to disagree with the flow. we need more people in all leaderships that have a mind of their own,and present it in a orderly fashion. I for one will pray for Gods hand over there lifes and decisions they will have to make.
    My name use to be McCain and Iam still a woman.

  2. If I am going to a meeting here at church I leave me cell phone in the office and I very seldom bring it on Saturday night or Sunday. If I know that I have to make a call at a certain time I try to be near a land line insteat of trying to hear on the cell.

    I’m with Wynnel with McCain’s choice. She is in her position for a reason and I think will bring a new view on alot of matters that are facing out country.

    I have to say………no. Hahaha, or at least I will comply my setting it on vibrate. In my industry meetings can drag out at times as people really enjoy hearing their own voice, so it has been many a times, that “all too important call” has saved me.

    I know……

  4. I am at a place in my life that I prefer to be in control of who I communicate with. It is a good feeling. I always turn off the cell phone prior to a meeting.

  5. I agree and I would also like to add…turn it off during dinner. Have you been out to dinner and seen a table with people texting or talking to someone on the phone rather than spending time with the person they are at dinner with?? There are very few real emergencies.

I want to hear from you! Let's hear it....ready....GO!!!
