Celebrate National Cellphone Courtesy Month with Speck

Celebrate National Cellphone Courtesy Month with Speck
It’s National Cellphone Courtesy Month! Time to brush up on some cardinal rules on where, when, and how to courteously use your cellphone without driving your neighbors nuts.
  1. Don’t bother texting under the table at dinner. Your date sees it, the waiter sees it, you might as well tell them you're not interested instead of rubbing it in their face.
  2. If you decide to wext (walk and text) and you proceed to run into something, passerby’s reserve the right to laugh before they ask if you’re alright. That’s just the way it goes.
  3. If you usually have your phone off of silent, pick the default ringer and not One Direction’s newest single.
  4. Don’t be that person on an airplane, in an elevator, on the bus, who feels like it is absolutely necessary to play games on full volume.
  5. If you are going to have a private conversation in public, put it on speakerphone so we can at least get both sides of the story.
  6. Don’t send a Snapchat to someone who’s been waiting for a text back from you. You know who you are.
  7. Your friend left their phone on the table. That means they trust you. Don’t ruin their trust by hacking into their Facebook with an embarrassing status, changing their Tinder settings, or updating their keyboard auto-correct from words like “hey” to “fingernails.”
  8. Turn off your cell phone's flash when snapping photos of that weird lady on the bus. Yes, she saw that.
  9. Selfies can wait, especially in the middle of a busy intersection.
  10. Nobody wants to hear you chat up your friend on the bike at the gym. Your friend can wait, too.
Huffington Post published the article "This Restaurant Gives A 50 Percent Discount If You Turn Off Your Phone," and the story is just how it sounds. Jawdat Ibrahim owns the cafe Abu Ghosh, where he says he'll be "changing the culture of eating" by eliminating the silence between couples, families, and friends as they text away during meals. Did we miss something? Let us know in a comment what you're doing to be a courteous cellphone user this month!
