Projectile vomiting in the meat aisle

A bloody slasher flick during dinner or watching an eyeball operation while eating grapes is not the kind of stuff that fazes me.

It’s hard to gross out someone who habitually takes photos of dead and rotting things.

But a cell phone conversation I overheard in the lunchmeat aisle at Fry’s Food Store made me pretty sick.

A woman was loudly discussing projectile vomiting just as I happened to be staring at some slimy pink meat.

She was wearing one of those colorful scrubs shirts that indicates work at a clinic, so I was glad to learn, at least, she was talking about a patient and not discussing the topic for kicks.

Since she then mentioned isolation and kennel, we can only hope she worked at a veterinarian’s office.

She moved on to loudly discuss projectile stuff coming from the other end. I quickly scampered into frozen foods without buying that meat. And I also steered clear of the peanut butter.

What’s the most disturbing phone cell conversation you overheard?

What do you do when confronted with loud, disgusting conversations?

Should there be a ban on cell phones in the meat aisle?

    OMG, you are ruining my breakfast! 😉 Hopefully that mystery meat in the pic was in Sawyers dish! Rynski sez: “What do you do when confronted with loud, disgusting conversations?” At the movies politely tell ’em to STFU! Elsewhere leave the vicinity when possible. It really tics me off when people do not have the courtesy to respect those around them, by not being loud or profane, especially around kids.

    hope you weren’t eating bacon!

    yes, that would be a sawyer/phoebe treat in the photo.
    cell phone at the movies? c’mon…that’s BEYOND rude.
    they are also quite taxing on public transportation when you’re crammed next to someone blathering on about some inane topic who then actually GLARE at you when you give them a look.

    I watched a woman from a third world country pull off her kids totally full pamper and leave it on the floor in the candy aisle at a Frys, never went there again. Told her to pick it up but she no habla ingles.
