Cell Phone Etiquette

In today's world people pretty much just talk on their cell phones wherever they are. Southern Man himself is occasionally guilty of this. And in a crowded airport terminal there aren't that many options. But Southern Man found himself in the close proximity of a conversation about poop.

Yes, this conversation dealt in nauseating detail about the amount, color, shape, consistency, odor, texture, and frequency of poop. Not to mention the variety of foreign objects contained in poop.

Well, Southern Man has kids and felt some empathy for a guy who was obviously dealing with a sick child and distraut woman. But does one really have to discuss poop, in public (we were seated at the gate), for ten long minutes?

The kicker was the end of the conversation when it turned out the subject was a dog.
