Phone Etiquette

Finding the best time to hang up the cell phone



After a tiring day, a commuter settled down in his seat and closed
his eyes. As the train rolled out of the station, a woman sitting
next to him pulled out her mobile phone.

She started talking in a loud voice: “Hi sweetheart. It’s Sue.
I’m on the train”. “Yes, I know it’s the six thirty and not the
four thirty, but I had a long meeting. No, honey, not with that
Kevin from the accounting office. It was with the boss.
No sweetheart, you’re the only one in my life.
Yes, I’m sure, cross my heart!”

Fifteen minutes later, she was still talking loudly.
When the man sitting next to her had enough, he leaned over
and said into the phone,
“Sue, hang up the phone and come back to bed.”

Sue doesn’t use her mobile phone in public any longer.
