Yeah, if I'm texting in public, 95% of the time I'm by myself.

She claimed she could hear me perfectly well. But it absolutely aggravated me, and one day I just put my foot down. After an argument, we settled that it was a cultural faux pas in Australia but something perfectly natural in the US. I suspected that was complete bullshit from her in a desperate attempt to try to excuse her rudeness, and your post just confirms that for me.

Hey, Khan, I only now noticed the Recurring Dream quote in your sig.

yeah, i hate when i have to text around someone. i just feel so rude.

the sad thing is, she's probably more right than me. thanks to people steadily losing their manners, you'd probably find more people (at least people our age) who thinks it's perfectly acceptable to text/talk on the phone while they're with other people, or listen to their ipod while trying to carry on a conversation.

Oh god, don't mention people listening to their mp3 players while you're talking to them. Fucking hell. Probably the most annoying thing in the world - you've listened to that shitty song 57 times in the last week beforehand, why can't you listen to something I'm going to say just once?

I don't know how people could possibly think it's OK to listen to their iPod while having a conversation. I often don't even like background music being on. If I'm talking to someone, I'd like to, you know, focus on what they have to say! Not some song I could put on by myself whenever the hell I like.

Seriously, I almost wanted to slap the earphones off her head. And she couldn't even understand why I was offended. Good god.

People just have shit for brains and a shoddy life education from parents who are equally as rude. Way to go, society!

Anyway, this is far later than I intended to stay up. Have a good one, folks.

Bonnie: I may not be on Interference much tomorrow (well, today, heh), what with study that I need to do. Please e-mail/text me re: plans for the coming week if the topic comes up on the thread or you just want to do some organising or whatever. If I were to make a suggestion, maybe National Gallery before Greek dinner Wednesday, then early Indian dinner and piss-up Thursday? Anyway, I need sleep now, but don't hesitate to drop me a line tomorrow if I'm not around here.

So glad I decided to do one last refresh of the thread.

i know these people are learning this from their parents who see them ignoring them and talking on their cell phone instead. of course they're going to be just like that.
