“We should order the lab coat.”
“The lab coat?!”
“Darn autocorrect. The LAW FIRM. No, the LOCKSET. Argh! The LOBSTER!”

Do you have a friend who is always using his or her cellphone at group gatherings? Or do you often hear annoying ringtones at the movies – even after the “silence your cellphone” message? In honor of National Cellphone Courtesy Month, Interstate Batteries is helping you stay courteous with a few cellphone rules of engagement.

Noisy guy in the elevator.

Don’t be that guy.

  1. Don’t text and drive.
  2. Avoid personal topics in public.  It might make others feel uncomfortable and embarrass you.
  3. Lower your voice when talking on the phone in public.
  4. When you’re not talking to someone on the phone, remove your Bluetooth headset.
  5. Plug in your headphones when watching videos or listening to music in public.
  6. Meal time is a “no phone zone.” Choose instead to engage with the ones you’re with.
  7. Don’t answer a call or text while you’re having a face-to-face conversation with someone else.
  8. End your call before getting on the elevator.
  9. Don’t make others wait for you. If you’re in the checkout line, finish your phone call before it’s your turn.
  10. Choose your ringtone wisely.
  11. Watch your language. Those around you can’t “bleep out” expletives.
  12. Keep your phone charged. Dropped calls can be embarrassing and even a little rude.
  13. Don’t use your phone in the restroom. Please.
