Default Is there anything more annoying...

...than someone shouting into their cell phone with the other party on speakerphone while in public?

Just went for a beer and some wings at a local patio. Dude at next table on his phone the entire time shouting into it like a moron nonstop.

First of all why? Secondly what dude talks on the phone for 40+ minutes nonstop?

If he's got the guy he's talking to on speakerphone, just join in the conversation. That would probably make him get up and move away from you.

They weren't speaking English.

No idea what language it was. Something middle-eastern I think. Farsi maybe.

Call the FBI. Claim you heard the word "bomb". Wait for him to be hauled away...and made a Congressman within a year.

I've done it for work stuff, but it is torture for me.

I have a 92 year old aunt who lives about 80 miles from me. Normally, I would drive down there to see her, but she is completely shut in with the COVID thing, so we have been talking on the phone. She knows I hate to talk on the phone, but hates to hang up because she has so little social interaction other than the phone. I try to call when my wife is home, so she chats with my aunt for a while after I have had enough. It works, but sucks for all involved.

The guy is gay. Any man talking more that 10 minutes on a phone is gay. The same reason that women have gay men friends.

"Dude!!! Stop touching my penis!!!"

Or "GUN!!!!", followed by gun shot sound effects.

Something like that should do it...

Or, record the sound of your toilet flushing and play it back at full volume, right behind the person.

So many possibilities.

When I left Vancouver back in the '90s, I was beginning to feel that I was quickly becoming a visible minority. High-rise construction exploded in the '80s and '90s. All of the buildings were offered for sale in Hong Kong and most sold out in hours. The influx of Asian cash was huge.

Dude come to the GTA, especially west side, you will swear you landed in India.

I remember 25+ years ago I had a lady friend from NC come visit me. I picked her up from the Airport and went straight to the university i had to do something. I left her in the common area for 30 minutes or so and when I came back she was freaked out at how out of place she felt.

TWENTY-FIVE YEARS AGO.

And we're importing 350,000 "new Canadians" a year.
