i too cannot abide by someone talking on the phone in places where they should NOT be (as an example at work last week, i walked into the loo. there was a woman in there on her cell phone. i washed my hands and kept glaring at her. she did NOT get the hint. so in the cute gentle voice i have - NOT - i said, 'go ahead and finish your conversation. i'll come back when YOU are done. sorry to have disrupted you'. really, that is rudeness squared) or texting (we had a two day class last week at work. a friend of mine was texting the WHOLE two days. right in front of the facilitator, who by the way was an outside hired contractor. i wanted to say something to the texter, but i didn't.) i use my phone, don't get me wrong, but i don't think it's at inappropriate times.
