If you're not doing anything that impinges upon my safety, great. However
if you are carrying on a cell phone conversation in rushhour traffic and
going 15MPH below what everyone else is doing, or think that finding that
number on a tiny-buttoned phone whilst not paying attention in an aisle at
a store, then you deserve nothing but disdain (and a smack on the bottom!
- unless you like that sort of thing, in which case you *don't* get it).
I believe it's mostly people "getting in the way" that bother me, and not
paying attention to their surroundings. Is there not enough beauty in a
dining companion (or your food, or your beer, or whatever else) to pay
attention to it?

Do the non-mayo-liking people also not like potato salad, egg salad, etc?
