I'm really sick of it. You can't go out to eat or stop at the local tavern for a cold one, shop in the grocery store without some jack ass walking around with his phone shoving it into all of his buddies faces playing some stupid fucking video. Or taking phone calls on speaker phone!! I don't do it and I don't want you intruding on my life with your stupid shit. I do not want to hear what is on your fucking phone regardless of how funny you might think it is or how important you think you are by making your phone conversations public domain. Take it home and laugh your ass off all day in your underwear sitting on the couch. Just fucking stow it in public places!
I'm sitting here right now while my wife has some stupid shit on Facebook playing on her phone.

I don't even own that type of phone, so I certainly don't want to be forced to listen to other people's. I hate it when we are out to lunch and can't have a quiet conversation because someone at the next table is playing an obnoxious video on full blast and laughing like a hyena jacked up on Redbull.

I agree. Sometimes I'm tempted to take out my own phone and shout at it to some imaginary person on the phone.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

Common courtesy just isn't very common anymore. People are just increasingly rude with every facet of life. Whether it's a video on their cell phone or damn car radio rattling windows, seems more dicks are out there today than days past.

Id say I break the common courtesy thing. If your gonna piss me of in public, I'mma speak to you about it. I dont care if your baby daddy is right there, you either control your kid, or I'm going to ask the place to throw you out. And if you think for one second I wont spank my kid for the same shit, let him try it. He'll get quiet after a few more tears.

This. I can't stand that and it's attention seeking at its peak. Hold the phone to your fucking ear. That's the way its done. Bluetooth calls in your vehicle also. Turn the fucking volume down and don't leave your door open and expect privacy. It's a great feature when you're driving but not so much when you're parked and everyone can hear you.
I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I'm not.

Irritating to an extreme. What I find particularly annoying is when someone I know absolutely insists I have to see a video right that very second.
Right up there with people who don't understand how to filter their language at a restaurant. I curse like a fucking sailor and can tell some horrific stories, but not around families trying to enjoy their meal. It's not common courtesy (because it's not common) but it is basic courtesy.
