So we make our weekly trek to our favorite Tex-Mex place for fajitas. We get settled and start gorging on chips (because it's mandatory). As we were going to our table, I noticed a couple in the booth across from us, the guy was on his cell phone.
A few minutes pass, I glance over to see him STILL on the phone. His date or wife or whatever is just sitting there.
A moment passes. She starts to send a text to someone. He continues to talk on his phone. She fiddles with her phone some more.
This goes on until about five minutes before we finish our fajitas. They have not spoken to each other AT ALL because of their cell phones! I happen to hear him say to whoever he was talking to, while ignoring his date/wife, "Well, I'll call you back later."
What on earth is there STILL to talk about? What is SO important you ignore the actual live person sitting across from you for 30 minutes? I just don't get it.
Not that I'm a confrontational person, not that it was ANY of my business, but it was all I could do not to poke my nose in and ask him about it.
Thank goodness there were plenty of chips and salsa to keep me occupied.
