  • Is this person a monster?

"I was, in no uncertain terms, told off just now for having a quiet conversation with someone, by a guy that was sitting across from me at a coffee shop in Capitol Hill," writes Slog Tipper Clint. "The only caveat is that my conversation happened to be on the phone. I'd like to propose a Legally Binding Slog Poll to figure out if I or this unpleasant gentleman was in the wrong. If having a quiet conversation in a coffee shop is okay, is having that same quiet conversation over the phone also okay, or does the phone make it taboo?"

I am also curious.
