Be Polite, Put Your Phones Away

You look around in your classroom and the teacher is at the board talking about some helpful tips on how to do the new formula in math.

If you look at the students chances are they are on their cell phones tweeting or texting someone about “how lame this class is” or what they did this weekend.

Students need to put their phones away when teachers are teaching. It is rude and a distraction. Don’t get me wrong; I love using my phone as much as the next person but there is a time and a place for everything.

Not only is it disrespectful in the classroom, but also if you are hanging out with friends. Please put your phone away! It comes of as you are not paying attention or you don’t care about the person.

You wonder why older people get offended when you are constantly on your phone; it is because it is down right rude and disrespectful.

Your teachers and older relatives don’t care about this really funny Vine you saw last night or what one of your Twitter followers said about Miley Cyrus.

People want to talk with you, not your phone.

You know those annoying people at the movie theaters constantly on their phones? Don’t be that person at school or when you are with other people.

Save the tweeting for later and take your selfies on your own time.
