Default Eavesdropper intruders

You know sitting at a table for two gives you a little privacy but when you have
tables for two lined up side by side you're not going to get much privacy in your conversation. What really bugged me was that i was having a conversation about the ship's tour that I had been on and I was describing how the various departments had made little presentations. The sanitation department made there presentation and I was telling my tablemate about their display. I described the boxes of rat poison and other products they use and then I asked my tablemate the question, "and you know what really impressed me." From the next table the fellow yells, "the rat trap."

Not a big deal but you do expect a little privacy in your conversation.

The issue is not the lack of privacy, but the lack of good manners from the responder..lol

Default What really got me upset was that the intruder stole my punch line

This eavesdropper who I did not know and I did not know was on the tour where the giant rat traps were displayed; happened to notice the same thing I did and then before I could tell my luncheon companion about the rat traps, the eavesdropper steals my punch line by yelling out, "rat trap." Eavesdropping is one thing but stealing a punchline for a good story is unforgivable.
