I don't think so. I think it is funny when some people complain when someone is talking on a cell phone in a restaurant because they wouldn't be complaining it the person they were talking to on the phone was sitting across from them. Should conversations with other people be banned in restaurants?

Yes, they're pretty irritating. People could set their phone to vibrate and if they get a call, they could take it outside or in the waiting area.

It's funny, I wrote this a couple nights ago after some annoying people at the table next to us had their phones ringing all through dinner. Tonight I ate at a Japanese place where you share a table with strangers and a lady did the same thing! It was so rude, her friends were even telling her to get off the phone and she was on it the majority of the time. Nobody is THAT important that it can't wait a half hour for you to eat.

I was thinking of it from an eating alone perspective, but if you are with other people then it is rude. I don't know about banning though...

That would be impractical, as many people carry their cell phones everywhere. At the most, their usage inside restaurants should be banned.

Same thing

There should be a Cell-phone section, next to the non-smoking section.

I really don't care if people are talking on the cell phones in a restuarant, as long as they're not speaking at an excessive volume.

One person on a phone can be far less noisy than a whole table full of screaming and laughing teenagers. (Wow, don't I sound like a crotchety old woman... I forgot I'm one of those teenagers sometimes )

Dagnabit, Rayn, that's exactly what I was about to say.

Kiki: No, if something's banned in a place, then you're not allowed to take it inside.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 7/24/04 - 9:34:39 PM EST (GMT-5)
Anyway, I think it's the ringing of phones that's more annoying than the actual talking.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 7/24/04 - 9:49:07 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think I know how I meant my own question
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 7/24/04 - 9:50:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Well you should have worded it better. If something is banned FROM somewhere, then it cannot be IN that place now, can it?
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 7/24/04 - 9:52:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
Oookay freak. I'm sure most people understood it
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 7/24/04 - 10:06:47 PM EST (GMT-5)
Screw you, bitch. Where do you get off calling me a freak?!
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 7/24/04 - 10:24:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
Sorry, I didn't mean it as a bad insult, it just seemed like a weird thing to notice. I thought the meaning was clear but I guess not to everyone
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Saturday 7/24/04 - 10:28:31 PM EST (GMT-5)
I just asked a load of my friends what they thought this question meant and they said the same as me. I'd like to think that, as someone who studies languages, I understand my own pretty well
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 7/25/04 - 2:37:14 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, some people need to take urgent calls sometimes.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 7/25/04 - 2:41:02 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, but there should be a rule requiring cell phones to be on vibrate mode. That way, you'll still know if someone calls, yet you won't ruin dinner for others.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Sunday 7/25/04 - 2:41:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yes, yes they should.
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 8/5/04 - 1:25:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
No, yelling should be banned though.
Excessive ringing, too. If you're not going to answer withing 5 seconds, THEN you better have that sucker on vibrate.

And nobody cares what cool ringtone you downloaded off the internet anymore than they would care for you to bring a boombox with you. Idiots that hold their phones up and bob their heads with an idiotic smile, and their eyebrows raised should be shot. This is not a good medium for music. No one is impressed.

people should at least have the common courtesy to turn them off.

how did we as a culture get to the point where we have to be yackin' on the phone ALL THE FREAKIN TIME???

17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 8/12/04 - 8:06:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't think they should be banned, but people should be nice enough to put them on vibe, turn them off, and not yell into them. and if you can't hear the other person, HANG UP!
17 yrs ago, 9 mos ago - Thursday 8/12/04 - 8:15:41 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't own a cell phone myself and I do find it extremely irritating how people are always on their cellphones, but I don't think they should be banned, that's like banning annoying laughing in public places.
