lunch with lee(CELLULAR DISTRACTION)

Today’s menu: 2 much 411

We’ve all been there. You’re at the doctor office. You’re standing in line at the grocery store. You can’t escape it. You can’t ignore it. You hear a ringtone. Usually one of those obnoxious ones, and the horror begins.

You find yourself unwittingly, reluctantly, being privy to a stranger’s conversation. Sometimes interesting, most times, not so much.

KINDLY REFRAIN FROM CELLPHONE USE. THANK YOU.

That’s the sign posted in the office. Yet some lady(and I use the term loosely)chooses to ignore it. She carries on a conversation. There’s just some things we just don’t want to know. For instance, her boyfriend’s appointment next Wednesday at 11:15 with the proctologist.

All the while this is happening, I’m looking at the receptionist…giving her that ‘I know you see her on the phone …I know you hear her on the phone’ look. What are you going to do about it?

I’m asking myself am I the only one bothered? Am I the only one versed in cell phone etiquette? Am I the only one who has ever heard of using your indoor voice?

Receptionist calls her name. Cell still in hand, she stands up. She reminds me of a taller Ronda Rousey.

On second though, uh, there’s nothing wrong with sharing.
