    Some woman at a play recently wouldn’t turn her phone off, another patron broke it.

    Saw that, Loved it!!! Like Helen Mirren (as Queen Elizabeth 2) going out and chastising some street drummers for disrupting a whole series of live theatre performances. Also read about various actors who would walk off the stage and take the offenders’ phones and verbally abase the callee by telling the caller to try the call again a couple of hours later when the callee was out of the theatre. “Close to Home” had a great cartoon a few years ago )too tired to check the 90s archives) about strategically placed buckets of water overhead that would douse the offender who dared take a call during a live show. I applaud these folks. My friends who might expect emergency calls (from the hospital or babysitter) leave the phone with the box office and their seat number. You wanna take a call, watch the video at home. Thank you for listening, I shall relinquish the soap box to someone else.

    Just teasing, but I thought that Queen Elizabeth 2 was an ocean liner! ;-)

    Sorry, this rule is obsolete. My Bible is on my phone, and my church provides notes, updates, and childcare information through wifi during the service. It is a rule, however, to turn all electronic devices to silent/vibrate.

    I was at a funeral when a woman’s cell rang. She could’nt find it in her purse as it rang and rang. After about sixteen or seventeen rings the idiot got up and left the room.

    Back when cellphones were just becoming common, a friend of mine was stuck on the SF Bay Bridge behind some idiot yakking away. He got out of his car and banged on the guy’s window. The window got rolled down and the idiot said, “I’m on the phone!”. My friend (6’4" with a heavy German accent) grabbed the phone, tossed it over the side and said, “No, you are on the Bay Bridge during rush hour. Since you don’t have a phone, how about MOVING!”

    OH, by “idiot” you mean the woman with the phone, not the dead guy …

    Agreed. While I don’t have my bible on my phone, I do need to carry it occasionally. It is on vibrate so it does not ring audibly, and if it does ring, I take the call outside of the sanctuary.

    It’s the best idea, however, to just turn the S.O.B. OFF.

    I wouldn’t leave any electronic device in a vehicle. That’s just asking for it to be stolen. But everyone should either set it to vibrate and leave when a call comes through or turn it off.

    Exactly. Bible app on my phone too – but I make sure to turn it to silent before going into the sanctuary. And movie theatres. And classrooms (I’m a college instructor, so I try to make sure I do as I expect my students to!).

    I have my phone on vibrate, and if it is an emergency, I get up and go outside. Leaving the phone in the car is not an option for me because, as my mom would say," not everyone who goes to church is Christ-minded"….
