This Week In Self-Importance
This morning at my favorite local café, a young Hollywood-adjacent type spent about 45 minutes shouting into his cell phone about various topics, including the content of his non-disclosure agreement. He was then joined by a male friend with a haircut circa 1977 Warner Junior High School, who loudly worried about people "stealing our trade secrets." Um, dude, you're lucky I had a lot of computering to do, so I turned up my iTunes volume full blast, because the other guy was shouting your trade secrets so loudly that three people moved across the café to escape them.

buy headphones
listen to music
for a bonus, sing out loud....
to dirty songs

or get a voice recorder and tape him, where he can see you doing it.

Well, I don't want to be rude to other people, so I'm not singing out loud, etc. I'm not going to lose my manners just because others have none. But I did use the tape recorder method a couple of times! Worked well today, in fact!
