hi keep_onwatch, i guess it is the common case. you described it precisely. i also experienced it several time. when i took a short course about agriculture, there are some rules for the student. one of the rules is: in the class, everybody have to set their cellphone in silent mode. if it ring during the class, the owner will be punished. and my phone ringed during a class. well...i had to danced a stupid dancing in front of the class thx for being here...

NO way, because I always turn it on silent or leave it in the car or something if I am somewhere that I truly don't want to or should not be talking on the phone! Although it does happen frequently to those around me which is why I take those safety precautions! ha ha

Of course! I'm sure this happens to everybody at one point or another. It's happened to me in the middle of class and in office meetings. It's very embarrassing but it's just a fact of life. But you frantically try to find your phone and silence the ringtone as soon as you can. As long as the person didn't mean to leave it on, it's fine. However, the people who constantly forget or just don't care if their loud phone and blaring ringtone interrupts dinner in a restaurant or a movie in a theater, these are the people who are annoying. You can usually tell who these people are because they'll actually answer their phone in these situations. How RUDE!
