Aloha Friday: Something very annoying...


Something I find very annoying is when people talk on cell phones while at a restaurant. I mean do I really want to hear your drama and smacking at the same time while I am trying to enjoy my meal?

Tell me something you find really annoying?

Um.. A lot of things but my most annoying are people who are on the phone while driving.. And stupid people who just dont know how to drive..

I totally agree and it's usually much louder than a conversation they'd be having if they were talking to a tablemate.

That doesn't bother me so much, I guess being deaf is an advantage. Ha!

However, what does bother me is when a person with me takes a phone call while we're dining out and spends a greater portion of it gabbing with the person on the phone.

"Hey, we're visiting here. Aren't we?"

We take the time to arrange to visit and most often, it's them that wants to visit with me. But, instead, they spend a lot of the time talking on the phone or texting. Even that is rude.

I text a lot; but, I don't do it while visiting with others. I may glance at the phone briefly to make sure it isn't an emergency; but, I never text/respond back while visiting with others. It can wait for another hour or so.

Some days, I think I'm going to get up and walk out on them. But, I'm too polite.

The restaurant thing annoys me too! Especially when my hubby is emailing his boss to work while we're trying to eat out as a family. Stupid phones! :)

I couldn't agree more. Especially when it's someone you CAME with! That REALLY irks me. Uhm... did you come here to visit with me or to talk on your phone??

Avid texters are even worse. People always texting no matter what is going on... that's irritating.

Anyway, I'm a new reader! :) I'll be visiting again soon!

I agree!! At least if it's a call you have to take, like kiddos at home, get up and walk outside or to the waiting area! I personally, find when we are asked a million times.... "are they all yours?" a little annoying:)
