Sam, it is the people who are interupting your dinner or show who are being rude, and ought to be the ones apologizing - not getting upset. Where are people’s manners, anymore?
Maybe you ought to start calling their homes as soon as you know they’ll be in bed?
And if anyone consistently stopped in during my favorite show, I’d turn the volume UP, not the t.v. off.
But to answer your question, no. Most people I know know better. (Or know how good my aim is w/the Ms. Manners hardcover. lol)
Oh…And if anyone asks if he/she may call back, I immediately apologize for having interupted, and get off their phone asap. Same, vice~verse.
