We all have been somewhere/everywhere when an individual has a private cell phone conversation in your face and is dumfounded that you were not interested in hearing the details of her mother’s surgery when getting a pedicure. And I cannot count the times especially at a sushi bar that the person next to me indulges in one of those conversations while adroitly jamming his face with food while trying to use chopsticks. If you don’t like eating alone phone a friend.
This irritating practice reached new heights when the person next to me took out his phone, and I saw it coming – another dismal mundane conversation. But no, instead he decided to watch a tv show with the sound on. I on the other hand was not planning to watch tv and hence went to the sushi bar. Oblivious, he orders more food and proceeds to watch more tv. Luckily there was room at the inn so I moved myself to another seat and continued my meal in silence.
