I like people-watching.
My son and I had lunch outside at Panera today. It was a great day to be outside and a great day for people-watching.
I saw two (20-something) girlfriends having lunch. And then the phone rang and was answered. One of the ladies had a fight with her boyfriend (dropping f-bombs 10 feet from my son) while her friend ate her lunch in silence. How utterly rude — rude to her friend, rude to my son and I, and rude to all the other people dining outside. (By the way, what a gem! I can’t imagine why she would be fighting with anyone!)
“Um, can you learn some manners, please?”
I see it all the time with cell phones. One of the rudest things I see is people going through a check out line on the phone the whole time. Newsflash! Those are real-life human beings you’re ignoring. And, your life is only riveting to you. The rest of us don’t really want to hear about it.
Do people on their phones get on your nerves? What bugs you?
