WHEN it's ACCEPTABLE to gab away on your cell phone in public.
Pretty much never.
Okaaaay, maybe emergencies like...
*"Mom, you forgot me at soccer field again and I'm surrounded by rabid cheetahs."
*Grocery store- "Honey do you want regular pads or the long absorbent ones with stealth bomber wings?"
*"How bout the Hershey bar... bite size or the pounder?" (Dumb and dangerous question, but you get the point.)
*"Mom, Aunt Crazy's here. Don't come home yet." (Thank you, God. Close one.)
*"Kenny lit the babysitter's hair on fire again!"
WHY it's RUDE to have mouth diarrhea in a public place...
*That means gab on your iToilet cell phone.*
I (and probably 99.9% of the population) don't give a rats ass about your cousin Bambi's new glow-in-the-dark breast implants, Pat winning the jackpot at Lesbian BINGO Night, or that Two-timing Mitch's girlfriend gave birth to a three-headed albino dragon.
I. Don't. Care.
That stuff hurts my brain and makes it want to catapult right outta my skull onto a hot frying pan.
If you must gab in public, be courteous enough to put a garbage can on your head.
Also, if the public can easily hear your conversation, it's their right to engage in said public conversation at any given time.
This seems reasonable.
