Sunday I went to Borders to do my favorite thing ... drink coffee and pick out a few good books to read and just be all by myself. This to me is HEAVEN. Coffee, books, solitude. HOWEVER, my reverie was rudely interrupted as I had to listen to two 20-somethings yap yap yap not only to each other but listen to the both of them make phone calls for an hour WHEN I'M TRYING TO F-ING READ!!!!!! They were annoying not only me, but to every other person who was trying to do the same thing. THERE SHOULD BE RULES!!!! Remember back in the olden days when people had MANNERS? When you went to a library or a hospital or anywhere public you kept your voice down ... IF you even spoke at all. There was a sense of respect for the other people around you. Sadly, we no longer live in a civilized world and this kind of behavior goes on all the time. And it's not like they're were talking quietly. NO. They were loud and obnoxious.
GIRL NO. 1: NAH, SHE AIN'T ALL THAT. I MEAN SHE'S AN OKAY LOOKING WHITE CHICK AND ALL BUT PERSONALLY, I DON'T THINK SHE'S ALL THAT GOOD LOOKING AT ALL!!!
GIRL NO. 2: YOU'RE CRAZY GIRL. SHE'S BEAUTIFUL. LOOK AT HER EYES .. I LOVE HER MAKE UP AND I THAT DRESS IS AWESOME!!!
GIRL NO. 1: YEAH ... I'D TOTALLY WEAR THAT DRESS BUT IT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD ON HER!!
GIRL NO. 2: HEY ... YOU'RE GONNA GO SATURDAY AREN'T YOU?! DON'T BE ALL BACKING OUT ON ME BITCH!!!
GIRL NO. 1: IF I WANNA BACK OUT I'MONA BACK OUT BITCH! DON'T BE ALL TELLING ME WHAT TO DO!
GIRL NO. 2: GIRL DON'T BE LIKE THAT ... I TOLD HIM YOU WERE GONNA BE THERE FOR SURE!!! YOU'RE GONNA MAKE ME LOOK BAD!!
... and it went ON AND ON AND ON. OMG! I wanted to go right up to the both of them and shove each of my fists right down their throats! And the good people sitting around these two morons are just sitting quietly, trying to tolerate it all and wishing that they too, could shove a fist in their respective mouths.
With the advent of cell phones and the ability to communicate CONSTANTLY, I think someone needs to come up with some serious rules of etiquette and then pass a couple of laws that would fine morons like that. Either that, or make it legal to punch someone in the face when they're yap, yap, yapping like a pair of
...and that's all I have to say about that.
