Undomestic disturbances

Thanks to the scourge of cell phones, a person out in public will inevitably be privy to one end of a domestic argument every now and then. Just now, while outside walking, I couldn't help but hear a man who was loading things in the back of his pickup say, "Just let me talk! I know you don't believe me, but...will you just shut up for a second so I can talk?"

That was only one end of the conversation. Thanks to technology, it gets better. Last night outside Barnes and Noble, where several people were sitting trying to read (yes, it is warm enough out in the evenings to read outside), a man was sitting with his cell phone on the table and his wife was talking back to him on a speaker--so we got to hear both sides of the argument! Added bonus!
