If you aren’t presenting, MUTE THYSELF.  This isn’t rocket surgery, folks.  Your office background noise doesn’t make you more important.  The fact that you are taking this call from an airport doesn’t impress me.  The fact that you must take a call while you are on the meeting isn’t a positive thing.  The fact that you are multitasking doesn’t make me like you more.  The fact you work from home and have a dog is not cute.  Okay, it is, but we don’t need to know.

 

If you are a fan of Wil Wheaton, you can also share this in his meme, Don’t be a Dick

  • Karen, I agree with your point, but the language?

    • In the second graphic?  I wouldn’t normally use that language here, but I’m quoting Wil Wheaton’s tagline.  It’s optional language…for those who follow his mantra in life.

  • […] you are in an office environment with lots of background noise, please manage your own muting: Don’t Be That Guy. Also, it is good form not to use a speaker phone on a conference call.  This applies to all […]

  • I think this applies to any conference call but still a very valid point.
