The last few days i’ve been sitting at the reception desk at the Yeshiva where i work and the boys will be talking on their cells outside the office, very often they are strolling during their talking and meander in and out of the reception area
one boy must have come in out of the reception area about 10 times on one call.
I dont know about you but watching people pace is very nervewracking to me i gave him a look but he just ignored me, sometimes when walking the halls you have to be really careful not to get bumped into by a talker. What is it about having a cell phone at your ear that makes you lose all menschlicheit?February 24, 2011 6:44 pm at 6:44 pm #744046me tooMember
That is trivial in comparison to this.
I came into BH”M 5 min b4 Maariv. There were a few people learning and right in the middle sits a guy discussing the family comings & goings out loud.
When I told him a BH”M is not for your private conversations He told me there was nothing privateFebruary 24, 2011 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #744047
at least he didnt smack into you becuase his attention was elsewhereFebruary 24, 2011 9:01 pm at 9:01 pm #744049s2021Member

I pace all the time. I am thinking. But I am not on the phone.February 24, 2011 9:43 pm at 9:43 pm #744052guy-ochoMember
Ten years ago if a stranger came by you and said “hi whats up?”, you’d be perfectly within your rights to ask “do I know you?”. These days you would get a glare for disturbing the guys conversation, not realizing he was on his bluetooth.February 24, 2011 10:07 pm at 10:07 pm #744053Sister BearMember
I always pace when I talk on the phone, no matter how insignificant the conversation is. Why is pacing so nerve-wracking to watch??February 24, 2011 11:07 pm at 11:07 pm #744054
it’s just disruptive to have some one repeatedly enter your field of vision, if being on the cell phone cause you to be spacey than perhaps you should be sitting down when doing so, and i think doing something which will make you space out and make others have to watch where you are walking is a lack of menschlickeit.
