Cell Phones in the Restroom
A few times per week, I walk into a restroom where somebody is using their cell phone.
I know mobile-phone etiquette is an evolving set of standards, and reasonable people can disagree about what is reasonable, but can we reach some consensus on these principles?
- Nobody wants to receive a phone call from someone who is using a restroom.
- Nobody wants to listen to someone else's phone conversation while using the restroom.
- If you do use your phone in the restroom, you should be required to run the phone under the faucet on your way out.
