I have my phone on silent mode for 6 years now. Or maybe more. It’s been so long that I don’t know what my ringtone sounds like. I’m not kidding anyone here.
I feel that people do not need to know that I have messages coming in, especially when there’s heated discussion going on in some WhatsApp group. The incessant ‘ding’s irritates me, so I’m sure it irritates people around me as well. Out of respect for other people’s spaces, I have kept my phone silent.
Am I’m the only weird one doing this? I thought so at first, but I later found that a lot of respectable people I associate with actually does this as well. Personally, I feel that this is the new social and mobile etiquette. What do you think?
