Don’t Use Your Speaker In Public!
At the pharmacy today, the woman behind me entered the store in the middle of a very loud conversation on speaker mode with her daughter.
How did I know it was her daughter?
She called the woman Mom.
They spoke at length about a trip to Costco.
And dropping the kids off at swimming lessons.
And then picking them up.
They were as loud as they were inane.
Why did the woman stay on speakerphone?
Why didn’t she wait outside until she was done?
Did the daughter know that everyone could hear her?
The guy who was helping me was so distracted that he kept making mistakes.
Which only prolonged the agony.
It wasn’t his fault.
He’s usually very efficient.
If I were a bold and nervy sort of person, I would have joined the conversation.
Or at the very least, I would have done something distracting.
But I am neither bold nor nervy.
I simply endured.
And promised myself I will NEVER use the speaker in public.
Everyone has a story to tell.
