People on cell phones seem to think that no one else can hear their conversations. We have had people in the store, where I work, sit down on the floor in a corner and carry on a conversation as if no one else is around. I have overheard one end of conversations between lawyers and clients, therapists and patients, parents and children, and angry lovers! Some seem to have lost all sense of what should remain private. What amuses me the most is people who have an earpiece and walk around talking. If one cannot see the earpiece, one has to wonder if those folks are ok or in a space of their own. They are everywhere!
