Etiquette Boo-Boos

I am sure that most of you and your children have excellent manners -- then there are those who do not.

Here are the Top 3 Etiquette Boo-Boos that really bug me:

People who talk loudly on their cell phones in public places

Two booths away a woman was on her cell phone talking to either her banker or realtor or someone who needed a lot of private information from her. We could hear her giving her bank account number, social security number, a password for whatever and a credit card number. I could not believe I was getting all this private information. That was not only rude, but also clearly not smart! Had I been an identity thief I would have had all the information I needed to jump into action!

People who, when eating, chew with their mouths open
