This is more of a "did I do the right thing" question. I'm interested in others' opinions.
I was recently at a large conference with many presenters. I was shocked to have someone behind me in the audience not only have his cell phone ring--but then [i][b]take the call[/b][/i]. It wasn't anything that seemed to be time critical, either.
I tried giving him the fish-eye, but that didn't seem to work.
I thought about getting up and walking back to where he was and asking him to take it outside, but it wasn't my session (I was a guest), and I didn't want to create even more disruption.
Frankly, I was amazed that no one near him did this.
My gut instinct is that it would have been ok had I asked him to leave; but my years in the classroom have left me with [i]issues[/i] about disruptions when others are speaking. :P
What would you have done? Discuss :)
