Good manners are just a way of showing other people that we have respect for them.
Yesterday I asked…
The answers I got were interesting. Some thought it wouldn’t be a good thing to do because it keeps one from connecting with people in your company. Others thought it would be OK with family but with friends only if they ask or use devices themselves. Timing is a issue too, some say you don’t want to sound too eager while others say ask for it as soon as possible.
This seems to be a new area of cyber etiquette. Use your best judgment depending on where you are and who you are with. Of course when asking for WiFi be sure to not hog bandwidth, thats never a polite thing to do.
How long after arriving at someone’s house is it appropriate to ask for the WiFi password?
I hate it when some wahoo drives his car down the street with his music so loud I have to turn up my TV. Grrr!
I am very guilty of doing this to other people. Yes its rude but its a indication of how plugged in we are these days. Doh!
