An all-encompassing guide to proper coffee shop manners for those who use café’s as their office away from home. Below, guest panelist Maciej Kasperowicz takes on the decades old “Can I take business calls in a crowded coffee shop” question:
A: It’s most polite to take calls outside, but short, quiet conversations are permissible….
“Do take into account, however, whether the shop has too much background noise to effectively communicate over the phone. We might not mind the sound of your voice, but the person you’re on the phone with might not be able to hear you over coffee grinders, steam wands and music.”
I think I need to make this into an illustrated guide. Thoughts?
