Small confession, I'm new to the world of cell phones. I don't feel the need to always be available for contacting, and it was just another expense I didn't want to deal with. Then D went and got me a cheapo prepaid phone 'for emergencies.'
Apparently her butt decided it was an emergency and gave me a call just now. I find myself wondering, what exactly is the socially acceptable length of time to try and get someone's attention? Give up too easy and they might think you don't want to talk to them, but burn through too many of their minutes and they might get grumpy with you as well. Not to mention how silly you sound as you try to make enough noise to get their attention as their phone sits in their back pocket, or purse, or whatever.
Sure, I'm sure there's some etiquette site out there that would give me an answer, but I'd rather talk to my Blog then listen to them.
