I admit it, from time to time I'll make a quick call on my cell phone when I'm grocery shopping. I might ask if we need such-and-such or "What was that thing that you wanted?" or whatever. Always brief, always unobtrusive. That's my way.
I was at a grocery store yesterday, and not only was some woman on her cell phone the entire time she was in the store, she was also on speaker phone. So, I, and anyone else in the vicinity, got to hear BOTH sides of her inane conversation. I don't get it. It isn't as if having it on speaker freed up her hands or anything. She was holding the phone in front of her stupid mouth! How is that any easier than holding it to her ear? Also, since there is a lot of background noise in a grocery store, she often asked the dope she was speaking to to repeat himself!
Does she think she's the star of a television show where the audience (everyone else on earth) needs to hear all of the dialogue in order to follow her story? What the hell?
