Cell Phone Etiquette: Debating the Caller ID.
I've done quite a bit of research on this topic, including CNN, Monster.com, and this great list of cell phone etiquette resources.
Still, nothing is more frustrating than to be on the other end of the “Caller ID Debate.” If you’re not familiar with this atrocity, here are the four steps. (1) Your conversation partner gives you the “just a minute” index finger, (2) checks their caller ID, (3) tilts their head and stares at the phone for 2-5 seconds, and (4) makes a decision to answer the call or return to your conversation. This is terribly uncomfortable. You actually watch your friend (?) decide whether or not there’s someone else she’d rather talk to. Ouch.
LET ME ASK YA THIS...
What are your cell phone pet peeves?
