Each week during the sermon at church I’ve been hearing cell phones ringing. It’s been happening 2-3 times per week. Here’s some alternatives; silent/vibrate mode, off button or leave the darn thing in your car.
I wonder how many of these calls have been emergencies? My guess, about zero. Most cell phone conversations I overhear (FYI, I am a great overhearer so if you speak around me, I hear it ) are more “so, what are you, like, doing?”.
Cell phones are a great tool for communication but please consider how important it is to get that “important” phone call during church, a movie or anything else where the phone can be a horrible distraction to others.
