Tech Etiquette: Cell Phone Dos and Don'ts 8

DO Keep it to Yourself
It must be the tight quarters that lead some cell phone users to confuse elevators with confessional booths. How else can you explain one's willingness to disclose personal and explicit details to a box crammed full of perfect strangers? You know who you are. You step in saying something like, "I'm getting on an elevator, so I might lose you." And, though obviously aware you're in an Otis and not a sorority house, you go on to report -- for all to hear -- the particulars surrounding last night's sexual encounter. Keep it in your pants! (The phone, that is.)
