It might be hard to get the mental picture
but i will give it my best.
we are at a favorite restaurant, Not very big, not very busy. ( there is a couple sitting at the booth next to us and a single man comes in soon )
Hubby's phone rings.
I give him the look ( just a sweet smile ?)
He says it is important.
So in his "I am hard of hearing so I talk loud" voice he talked for a long
I never, well hardly ever complain. But for all the folks who are offended by the use of cell phones,in public places, I decided to stick my neck out and open my mouth and speak the truth
" when we are out to dinner I think it is rude to talk on your phone"
Then I Responded. Still in my sweet voice.
He responded. and is not happy. Not understanding how I feel.
( I call it validating MY feelings - does not go there )
I said, " why not ask someone else ! why not ask that fellow over there, see how he feels"
A voice behind hubby ... " don't ask me"
At this point I realized that I had raised my voice a notch.
I wish I could say that I got up and slipped over to his table and apologized, but ...I am a little slow on the draw...occasionally
Sometimes do you wish you could replay a moment and change it bit ? !?
