That’s right. If you use speaker phone for business, there’s a 99% chance that you’re a tool. The exceptions: group meeting where another party is absent, you know for a fact the other person doesn’t mind (IE you’re talking to another tool who uses speaker phone).
In most cases, it’s close to impossible to make out what the other person is saying. Half the time they sound like they’re in a cave or at the bottom of the ocean.
Conversely, ambient noises are amplified and the sound of high heels on the floor 20 feet away will shatter your ear drums.
Conversations between two people are typically meant for two people. The other person probably doesn’t want their voice broadcast all over your office area.
Scientific studies from Lowrey University prove that utilizing speaker phone in a business setting is a clear symptom of Narcisstic Personality Disorder*.
In short, don’t be a tool. Don’t use speaker phone.
That is all.
