That and the Crackberry at the social function things. If I am the host I have made it a point to have a collection platter for Crackberry's. I then take them upstairs with the coats.
I had one friend who refused to give it up and he said that he needed it in case work called. I said fine. When he was checking the sports score I snatched it out of his hand and took it upstairs. He was PISSED and grabbed the device and stomped out of the house.
Later we had a chat and he actually did understand why I asked him to give it up at the door, and I did apologize for taking it from his hand.
I just think it is so rude when you are talking to someone and they interrupt you to take a call or read an e-mail. I mean I am giving you my undivided attention is it so much to ask that you actually engage in the conversation?
