Do you suffer from “mobile” rage?

Do you feel like people talking on a cell phone next to you invade your space? Are you angered by the kid in the theater texting during the movie? Is talking on a phone in the bathroom offensive to you (even if the person is using a hands-free device?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you might be suffering from “mobile rage.”

FOX Business just posted some interesting stats:

A recent survey of 2,000 Americans conducted by Intel Corporation (INTC) and Ipsos found that 75% of respondents feel mobile manners are worse now than they were a year earlier, and 91% report seeing someone ‘misuse’ their mobile device in the past year.

The top pet peeves reported were using mobile devices while driving (73%), talking on a mobile device loudly in public places (65%), and using a mobile device while walking on the street (28%).

So which are you- a sufferer or a contributor? Or has technology broken down the walls of etiquette and privacy?
