Survey found 68% would answer phone during dinner date
We’ve all been there: you’re on the train trying to unwind after a long day when the familiar blare of a mobile phone pierces your ears and you’re soon a passenger in someone else’s conversation. It’s an all too familiar scene thanks to the surge in popularity of the smartphone.
I go ballistic (in my mind), when someone behind me on public transport launches into a conversation on the phone. Mostly they seem to think they have to shout into the phone. Either because they're on a bus or because they're talking long-distance! I don't know why. I feel like grabbing their phone and throwing it out the window!
