Hehehe.... we were just out earlier and had dinner at Tony Roma's. It was a busy time so we had to sit at the bar.
A group of people were sitting next to us, Americans, giving the loud corporate yak-yak spiel.
The guy on the other side of them from us, sitting there on his own reading the paper and enjoying ribs and a beer interupted...
'Excuse me, are you guys hard of hearing?'
'Er, no we're not'.
'Then why on earth do you have to talk so loudly!?'
hehe... maybe you had to be there, but the observation/comment was a precise skewering of that moment...
