You got that right. I don't know why people don't feel embarrassed to talk about their private lives among strangers, and in a loud voice! Sometime ago, while on a Trolley, I witnessed an old lady get thrashed by several young passengers around her, for daring to complain about the loud voice and beeps of a very inconsiderate cell-phone user.
Is silence, or at least relative silence, no longer golden?
Except for short emergency messages, I prefer to use the old standard phone.
That's what I plan on doing, using it for emergencies only. I don't want to get sucked in this "awful" trend of using it for just about anything. In fact, I may even give it to my mother, so it won't be left there to gather dust.
