    Somebody explain this to me.

    Mobile telephones still have a speaker at the ear end and a microphone at the mouth end, right?

    And a modern smartphone is pretty ergonomic with regard to getting the two things pretty near to where they want to be, right?

    So, why do so many people insist on holding the thing a yard away from their face and shouting at it, while the person on the other end is on loudspeaker?

    Do they imagine that everyone wants to hear their, entire, inane, bullshit, conversation?

    Satire is dead. Dom Joly couldn't take the piss out of this any more than Spitting Image could come up with anything more ridiculous than the current 'leadership' contest.

    Cheers, Jim

      It was a cultural thing a few years ago when it was very popular in places like Japan, China etc. Expect it has filtered through from there.

      The original thinking behind holding the phone like this was due to health scares and the myth that mobile phones could cause cancer in the head etc.

        Now, that kind of makes sense.

        For some its a desire to facetime - never really understood the point of that in public.

        Woman on holiday worked out the hard way why its not a good idea to facetime her boyfriend in a public area where he asked "you have a cheeky grin, have you fingered yourself this morning?" . She turned the volume right down after that for some reason..

          Presumably she had, therefore RULES.

            Go on then, explain. Why?

            Assuming not face-timing I should have said

                  never thought about it tbh. just like talking into it from there as opposed to at my ears.

                  dont get me wrong, i wouldnt do it where people could hear me (on a train as an example - i wouldnt talk on there).

                  if i was mooching along the road or at home ill put it on loudspeaker and natter away.

            It's for Everything Everywhere and you do need to hear all the conversation but also need to repect their Privacy, ethnicity, sexuality, hoodie, bling and their human rights innit
