Yes, I agree with you. I do think it is unpolite to speak very loudly while people are trying to work. I think you should be respectful of others. It is often very hard to concentrate when others are speaking loudly.

Yes..I do agree with you.I hate people who talks loudly with others or on mobile in work places.All the employees working seriously in the offices may disturb by their loud talking. It is not a good manner.Every one should be polite in the public i think.Happy mylotting..

I don't like people speak loudly at all, especially in office or classroom. I never call loudly in office when others are working. It's vevy very unpolite to disturb others. I always call outside the office and try my best not to disturb others.

Yes it is and if this is the case, we should not be afraid to speak with your coworker about the problem. In a lot of cases the coworker doesn't even realize that they are speaking too loud. The problem continues because the coworker is not made aware that there is a problem.

Of course it is a unpolite behaviour especially in office,it can distract others' work .Though they people say nothing at all to those who has so bad behaviour,they will feel unhappy in their own mind.

i do believe people in a workplace is somehow equivalent to one's family. they spend 8 hours together so i think they owe it to each other, as a sign of love and respect, to tell each other frankly how they feel especially if they are offended. there are ways to do this. just imagine talking to a sibling. they'll not get offended unless they view you as an outsider and not part of a second family which is how it should be. who knows: what you find offensive is what other people find offensive too. you owe it to your friend / colleague to let him know of this.

no its not rude. working in an office can be very boring, so please talk very loudly when you are talking to someone, especially about private matters so i will have something to laugh at, and be entertained.

In some case, I would say "NO" its not impolite to speak loud in the office. Why? because individual has different personality maybe speaking loud is their way of doesn't mean that they are impolite. Like my boss, he is a preist and he is loud...the way he speak or giving instructions or even asking something. hmmmmm Thats him and thats his personality.

Yes, I think so. I also met this kind of person , he always speak or call loudly, never mind any repugnants from other persons. Although many persons suggest him not to sound so loud, he ignore that. I think maybe something wrong with his ears, so he always feel other persons all like him. As usual, if a person's hearing is not good, it will influent his sound to be loudly. If that true, he should go to see the doctor immediately, if not ,i think he is really unpolite. Happy mylotting.

I think there are really other people who dont know how to think of "people around" in the place. They get carried away of anger, laughter that they dont know their voice is already disturbing other people. Its not great in the office, some of the people need time and concentration to do reports and such distraction wont be a great help. Its good to tone down voice when everybody is really doing their own tasks at work. Happy mylotting!

i have a co-worker too before that she really speaks so loud that everyone can hear her even from the other room. especially if she was talking in the phone. Or there are times she just blurted out on some issues. for me its really unethical or unpolite because some may just dont like it. especially if theres too much work to do and all she can do is talk and talk. it really gets me irritated.

Some times we are just premade with loud voices. I know that I have to be careful because I can get loud very fast and not even know it. I had an aunt that would call us and you could hear her talking on the other end of the room and that was her voice on the telephone. She was one of the nicest people you would ever want to meet but she was just loud. From all of us loud people to you. I am sorry and we will try to keep it down in the future. A lot of times we really don't realize we are being loud.

yes it is rude to talk so loud in a business. I think it's rude to be loud at any place of business. Not to mention talking on a cell phone.
