    Had a guy with a cell held to his ear ask me a question in CVS the other day. Told him to put the thing away and I would be happy to help him. Nope, waiting for very important call. I told him I would give him my full attention when he gave me his, then walked away.
    I won’t talk to you if you are wearing sunglasses, and if you have a bluetooth ear-piece you get ignored. God help you if you answer the phone while engaged with the cashier at the grocers.
    Call me obnoxious if you like, but I get people coming up to thank me, and even get applause on occasion.
    Social interaction on my terms? No, interaction on civil terms. Leave your fucking toys in the car.
