I just saw my new favorite clip having to do with etiquette that has gone by the wayside while watching Law and Order: Criminal Intent:
Suspect: [says something mildly unhelpful]
Det. Goren: [asks question]
Suspect: [begins texting while Goren speaks to him]
Goren: I'm sorry, are you texting us? Because we're the ones talking to you right now.
BAM. I am totally using that. I get very fussy about phone manners and lack thereof, although I admit I did walk through Target today talking to my mom. However, I didn't have a personal conversation about anything embarrassing. Is that better or just hypocritical?
