    Why must a person be available 24 hours per day? If you are in a meeting, at a meal, or even just having a conversation….DONT ANSWER THE PHONE. Finish what youre doing and call back. Unless you are waiting for some extremely important call, I think interrupting even a conversation to answer a cell phone is the height of rudeness.
    (I know I am in the minority here!)

    On a related topic, how about the folks sitting on the toilet talking on the phone? Kind of the opposite of a business meeting but also very weird.

    If one is distracted during a meeting by your cell phone whether you are checking an email, typing one, or answering a phone call this is inflicting with your sensory memory. You are focused on your phone but if someone were to ask you a question while you are not paying attention you will still be able to respond and be aware of what is going on. At first you may respond “What?” but before the question can be asked again you are able to remember the question, following with an answer. This is possible because of your sensory memory registered and preserved the other persons words, and long enough for you to remember what had been said or asked.
