Speaker phones

Why must people use speaker phones in a cube farm? More importantly (and annoyingly), why must they use them to call someone who sits within earshot? I hear more conversations a day because of at least one person on a speaker phone. Today, I was listening to 2 people discuss the fact that a meeting was not showing up on the calendar for Monday (govt holiday, but not for us) and they needed to fix it. One person was in their office, and on the phone using the receiver (completely acceptable). The individual who placed the call was in the cube just outside the office and made the call using the speaker phone. Honestly. How hard is it to get up and walk the 4 feet into the person's office??
