OK, if I didn't have a witness, I wouldn't believe my own story, but this actually happened:
I'm walking through a book store.
I pass a woman talking on cell phone in a voice that would be suitable calling for an airstrike on the Mekong Delta.
She was looking at the back cover of a book, and she was saying this:
"It's about people who talk too much, and how to make them stop!"
In a related story, I've discovered a great way to jab these cell phone offenders:
Man walks into book store and right between me and my friend.
He's also apparently calling for an airstrike from 410th Bomb Wing.
As he crossed the axis between me and my friend, I matched his volume when I said:
"HE'S ON THE PHONE. WE HAVE TO BE QUIET!"
Everyone in the store laughed except for . . . the guy. He gave me a case of stink eye.
How do YOU handle it?
