Yesterday I was in a grocery store and there was a man who was talking on his cell phone the whole time. We entered at about the same time and shopped at similar rates, so it seemed like we were always on the same aisle.
So for the whole 45 minutes we were there I heard bits and pieces of his conversation. It was nothing shocking or offensive, just a lot of,
“So, what else did you do this weekend? Oh, really, I’ve never been there, was it fun?.. Dan and Susan came over for dinner on Saturday and guess what, she was wearing a leather skirt! Hiiillllarious! She’s such a hard-core veggie!”
Etc etc etc
Do you consider this behavious harmless or obnoxious?
On the one hand, if he’d brought his friend with him to the store and they’d had the same conversation, no one would think it rude or unusual.
But it sure got on my nerves and I was really glad that he got in another check-out line!
