I'm sitting in Starbucks--surprise!--and trying very hard to not look up and stare at the women who are sitting just in front of me. They've been talking at a normal volume for quite a while, but in the last five minutes whatever they're discussing has become quite heated. Well, one of them is upset, the other just looks a little annoyed.

It was my idea and she's getting credit!

No, she just corrected a few of the errors.

I didn't ask her to, and she needs to shut the hell up!

I'm not looking, but I imagine spittle is flying as she barks out her hurt feelings. I also imagine bulging eyes and throbbing forehead veins, but that's because I read too much drama type fiction, I think.

The gold, though...there's a little girl, maybe 5 years old, sitting a couple tables over who just leaned toward her mom and whispered quite loudly, "Well now, that behavior is unacceptable."

Biting my tongue, biting my tongue, because that did make me want to laugh.

Good for her. She has probably heard it a million times and apparently understands it!

Wow...there's a child out there who isn't totally spoiled and can see other things beyond herself! Impressive.
