Can you hear me now?

Phone Etiquette from the Point of View of That Annoying Person Talking Loud/Soft

When I have a cellphone at full volume at my left ear which has 1/8 the sensitivity of my right, the other 7/8 of the sound going to my left ear makes it to the right ear.

However, I am getting about 1/2 the information, which is just enough to understand someone who speaks at "normal" loud enough for everyone to hear so that they keep their distance) in public.

On the other hand, the reason for talking quietly on the phone is to ensure that EVERYONE listening pays closer attention to what you say on the phone.
