You know what I think is unbearably rude? Answering a cell phone when you're with someone.
It never fails that if I'm at a restaurant, out shopping or riding in a car with someone their damn cell is going to go off at some point. Now, personally, I would let it go to voicemail, but 9 times out of 10 the person is going to answer and begin carrying on a conversation with the caller. Then you have to sit there awkwardly and try to find some way to occupy yourself, stare out the window, pick at your food and try to remember the conversation you were in the middle of so you can pick it back up when your rude acquaintance hangs up.
Sometimes you have to answer, and I can understand that. You're meeting up with someone and they need time/directions/etc, or you're waiting on an important phone call. Do your business and end the call as soon as possible. I don't have a problem with that. What I'm talking about are the ones that get an unexpected, random call from someone, answer the phone and start gabbing about whatever-under-the-sun...while you sit there, patiently, waiting for them to return their attention to you.
Not to mention that I'm against answering or using phones in public places or cars to begin with but when someone does this, I feel aggravated.
It never ceases to amaze me how rude cell phones have made the average person. Even the most common of courtesies seem to fly out the window now that everyone feels they must live with a cell phone glued to their ear. Has anyone else noticed this?
