To the lady in town from Florida visiting her daughter and shopping at TJ Maxx today:

I do not want to hear you yelling two aisles over to your daughter about how you refuse to pay $80 for a pair of "Lilly" pants. And continuing to rant about how the Charlotte TJ Maxx is not nearly as good as hers in Florida. And when your cell rings, I do not want to have to listen to your loud minute by minute diatribe about your visit to whomever is calling. Really. Don't want to hear it. It is rude to subject others to your boring call.

And to the guy in front of me who opened his car door to spit at the red light. Common.

Neither one of you were raised right. What is the world coming to?

Man, I hear that! Please - talk quietly among yourselves, but we really don't want to hear your conversation on the next aisle over. "Inside voices," please! And really, cellphone users - can it not wait until you are someplace more private? I can see a brief check in, but a long, loud conversation - I mean, I've heard arguments, complete with swearing, within earshot of my kids in Target. What the heck? Are you oblivious to others?

And spitting in public is just gross. Your mama must be so proud!" (sarcasm)

Haha, "inside voices" is right!!

I sit in my car to finish a conversation, even if that means 15 minutes in the car, before entering a store. I refuse to be one of those morons in the store making you all listen to me talk!

It really depends on how you where raised.

First ever time in Charlotte wife & I where in Harris Teeter her phone rang answered it and then got off the phone really quickly when she realised she was the only one on a phone in the entire store.

As for the women in TJ MAX me being so charming with my british accent would have very nicly told her to stay in Florida

My celll phone is my best friend shopping anywhere that the sales people earn a commission like a car lot. Great way to ignore the pushy salesperson.
