A DIFFERENT KIND OF CELLPHONE ETIQUETTE (opens in new window/tab)

  1. I always get up and pass the phone over to the owner if they’re not too far away. If they’ve popped off to attend to the call of nature then I let it ring off and when I see them let them know they missed a call, it’s up to them then whether to return it or not.

    I’d *never* answer someone’s phone unless they looked over and said “Can you get that?” I wouldn’t want anyone to answer mine in case I didn’t want them to know who I was speaking to!

  2. Option #5: Accidentally spill your drink on the offending phone.

  3. Do NOT ever, ever, ever touch anyone else’s phone! EVER!

  4. Option 6: Check your own voicemail, which gives you an excuse for not doing whichever of 1-4 the other person expected.

  5. Unless they are on a tether and it’s their parole officer (or they have someone in the hospital) you leave it alone.

    As far as I’m concerned if they were next to the phone and you were standing there they can let it go to voicemail. They are visiting with you and it’s YOUR time. The caller can call back…
