Speakerphones in public


There’s a hot new trend in smartphone usage. People have ditched traditional earbuds and Bluetooth earpieces to let everyone in on the conversation.

There are several ways to talk on your speakerphone. You can hold it directly in front of your face similar to looking into a mirror. You can hold it like you are eating a pop tart and shout into the bottom of the phone. The most creative I’ve seen is tucking it into your shirt at the shoulder so the mic is near your mouth.

Remember to speak at a higher volume into the speakerphone, like it’s on the other side of the room.
