QUESTION.





You are sitting in a restaurant with your spouse enjoying a night out. Suddenly, you both become aware of a table of young, single college girls sitting across the aisle from you. They are talking and laughing loudly about...let's just say...topics of a pornographic nature. It's becoming very distracting. Do you say something?

well, i believe i have been remiss in commenting on others blogs...so this too has become a new task for me...so...here goes...i think that, depending on how far into my meal i was i might ask for a different table...but if i was far into my meal that might not happen, so possibly could say something to them, but really who has the guts to do that...if i had kids with me it would be easier...but then again...never having been subjected to this personally, not sure what i would do at that moment...these are the kind of moments a person should prepare for...in case it was to ever come up...and yet if it wasn't for your question i probably never would have thought about it...hmmmm, interesting....so, like...WHAT DID YOU DO?

Tell them to shut their yappers ;) Joke joke, that's a hard situation. I would probably go talk to them... just ask them kindly if they can talk quieter or talk about something else. You have the right to nice evening! :)

Well, we tried staring at them in shock and disgust...but they didn't pick up the hint. That is where we got stuck. Now what? Do we have a RIGHT to say something? Would we just seem self-righteous? We were especially concerned because these were LDS students from BYU-Idaho, and Andrew's calling in a student ward deals a lot with student's worthiness. In the end, after discussing at some length what we WOULD say...they left and we didn't have to say a thing. But honestly, I don't know if we would have anyway. We just weren't sure if we should have or not.

totally. you are probably older, definitely wiser, and yeah...just not cool to talk about nasty stuff in public.
