“Don’t Mind Me”

I really don’t care if you talk on your cell phone within my earshot in public (trust me, you’re not that interesting).

And I don’t necessarily lose it when you dawdle using the ATM while I’m standing behind you.

But — and here’s the part that seems self-evident — if you’re going to tie up the ATM machine while there’s a line(!!), you may just want to delay taking that cell phone call.

I and two other people got treated to this exceptionally boorish behavior at an Uptown ATM earlier today.

(Try this in a less patient, “Minnesota-Nice” city than Minneapolis and you’ll get more than cold stares.)
