I should be told I'm on speakerphone, right?

by Sondra
(Minden, NV)

I was talking to my ex-husband about a situation regarding our adult daughter. During the conversation he put me on speaker phone, with out telling me, and I was talking to both he and his wife.


I wouldn't have stopped the conversation, but I think it is rude for them not to tell me.

Am I just reacting or I think it is rude to to convey this.

Thanks,
Sondra

Speakerphone Manners
by: Eunice

If you use a speakerphone to answer, it is good telephone manners to tell the caller so.

If you sense that you're on a speakerphone, and you're not comfortable with it, just say, "Am I on speakerphone? Do you mind if you turn it off because it is hard to hear."

Do unto others right?

You are right that is rude! I would say lesson learned now just expect him to do this in the future. I hope you have better experiences with your ex in the future.
