I know people do it without thinking, but isn't the person saying that the caller is perfectly entitled to interrupt the conversation he was having with me?
Or am I just longing in vain for good manners which have now disappeared?
Anyway, that's my pet hate at the momenr, what's yours?
P.S. I also hate people answering their cellphones in elevators, where there is no escape.
And why do people who do this invariably have the loudest voice?
