The speakerphone, one of the smartest and most annoying features of the telephone. While it’s great that you can be lazy and not hold the handset to your ear, it can be annoying to others around you. Here’s some advice:
- Move the call into a conference room with a phone, or into a private room.
- Invest in a low-cost headset.
- Never use speakerphone for personal calls, you’ll never know who’s eavesdropping.
- If you must use the speakerphone, keep the volume of the conversation low and short, we tend to raise our voices when speaking into the phone.
