So you are casually strolling and hear someone shouting down the phone like they are hard of hearing like WTF move the phone down a bit or try calling again rather than deafen everyone ffs.

Or when you are in the same room as someone whose on the phone and they are shouting.

Am I the only one this bugs?

* not arguing just having normal conversation.

Likewise, there is no need for it.

I rarely speak on phone but if I do, I never shout because neither me or the recipient are deaf. I hate when people talk in public so loud that even with earphones in, still could hear them shouting :facepalm:

Some may do it because they're from countries with poor reception, I remember once we had some african people stay with us, and a few times they had phone calls on their mobiles and shouted so loud, because back home it was the only way to ensure you were being heard properly :lol:

If they're european-born though, they're probably just stupid

Maybe the person on the other end keeps saying "I can't hear you". I know if I shouted that would be why. Actually I'd sooner tell them I'll phone them back.

Or do you mean those people who are having a smooth conversation that isn't being interrupted by bad reception, and just want the entire street/bus to hear? They're just attention seekers, they get off on you looking at them. Well, that's what I guess because I would think it would be embarrassing to have strangers hear your phone conversation.

My theory - the speaker in a mobile phone is less powerful than the speaker in a wired in landline phone (to save battery on the mobile) and because they're only getting quiet sounds going into their ear the users they think they have to yell.

seems to be less of a problem as people have got more used to mobiles too, when they first came out everyone used to yell.
