I hate talking on the phone in general, but I'm practially embarrassed when I have to make a phone call in a public place, maybe just because I share your seething anger at those who feel their conversation is more important than anything else that might be going on in the same space.

I'd practice impressions and funny voices but never went anywhere with… » 1/21/15 6:03pm Wednesday 6:03pm
