Recently I was sitting on a plane when a guy sitting right behind me says on his cell phone: “Listen, I shouldn’t really be saying this to you since this is really confidential and nobody is supposed to know this, so please keep it to yourself”.

Hey buddy, if this is so confidential, why did you just tell the whole plane about it? It amazes me the kinds of conversations people have on cell phones in public places. Public conversations are not meant for confidential client information, employee reviews, sensitive personal information, etc. Use your common sense and only have the sensitive conversations at the right time and in the right place. Never have conversations like these in public places.
