It was my boss's boss that cancelled the conference There were some other parties involved and it would have been good to advise them of the changes
JohnK said:Simon, I find a lot of things annoying. Have patience. Someone slower than others is unfortunate and part of life. Mobile phones are not. There is an overwhelming objection to mobile phone use on aircraft. For a change I hope the majority, and not the loud minority, have their way on this one.
I need to have patience - well you need to have tolerance of other people needs/wants - you cant have it both ways. We cant have an abitrary list of things that we are tolerant of and things that we aren't when it comes to normal every day behaviour.
Its interesting - there have been two comments that refer to "silent majority" getting their way - I actaully am seeing that its a very loud group that are banging the drum not to have mobiles operating on planes - there are few vocal people who dont care either way (I dont care and will mostly have myphone off - I just dont like being told that because someone else finds it annoying that I cant use my phone) and very silent majority who have given no opinion on the matter...
