Consideration and true Needs
There is always an exception to the rule. For example: IT Folks that are required to be available 24/7, expecting an email/call, ect.--I AM the IT for where I work and I only take my phone w/me to a mtg if I fall under that scenario, which isnt always so to be respectful, unless I need my phone I leave it at my desk. However, I still think it is rude, distracting to others and inconsiderate for anyone else that is not required to be "on call" to be futzing with their phones during a mtg--even more so if it is the person that called the mtg! Its even more annoying when they have two phones (one personal and one work) that they futz with and they have no reason to be dinking on it--they are just texting their friends. Again, with the expection of anyone that is required to be on call or monitoring something. Yes we are all adults but that doesnt mean we always act like one.
