New Year's Resolution: Better Cell Phone Etiquette

My New Year's Resolution: Better Cell Phone Etiquette

While Kristy is working on her New Year's resolution, I'll be trying my hardest to work on mine: better managing my cell phone etiquette. Despite my best efforts, I'll usually end up leaving my phone on the table while I'm in a social situation, resorting to checking Facebook and Twitter if I'm bored or lonely, or jumping every time I receive a text message. I know it's usually rude and wrong; I've even written about proper cell phone etiquette in the past!

So, in 2011 I vow to be more aware of my phone-related actions. No more phone on the table while I'm dining. No more texting while I'm at the checkout counter. And no more jumping at every text message I receive.

I hope I'm able to keep this resolution through the full year and force a behavioral change on myself. Do you have a geeky New Year's resolution of you own? Share it in the comments below!

I do the same and even on dates. I remember one time I went on a date and it was the chef special where the chef came to tell us what was the next entree and how it was made and I didn't realize it but yes I was on my phone. I didn't think it was rude till I realized he payed $200.00 for a dinner meal and I was tooo busy on my phone to realize how much he put an effort to taking me out to a nice dinner. I should reconsider not using my phone too. Great thought and good new years resolution. :-)
