You Talk Too Loud

Mr. McGee and I went out to dinner last night and sat behind a group of women who were TALKING AT THE TOPS OF THEIR LUNGS, so loud that I expect people four tables away were having trouble hearing one another.

Which was annoying. And annoying that they were 3/4 done with their meal when we got there, but ended up staying until AFTER we left.

But what was really annoying -- and somewhat amusing -- was when their absent friend called, they put her on speakerphone, and they proceeded to discuss AT THE TOPS OF THEIR LUNGS her sexual escapades and pregnancy status.

Dude. Just ... dude.

Were you at McDonald's? :-P

Sadly, no. Vallarta's. (Which I love, it wasn't their fault there were ridiculously noisy middle-aged women behind us.)

I would have walked up to the table and started talking to the girl on speakerphone. When they look at you like you have three heads, tell them that they were talking so loud that you assumed they wanted everyone to be part of the conversation.
