Sure! Made me feel inconsequential.

No, but many times I was told that I needed to be quiet because <name of other person> was speaking.

I was told that I talk too much and was punished severely for even talking quietly when told to be quiet. Felt confused.

Not since I was 10.

We were taught manners as children. Interrupting people, particularly adults, was not polite. That courtesy remains unchanged.

This girl, about my age, was on her phone in a checkout line in a store and she wasn’t talking very loud. A man in front of her told her that and I just thought he was being very rude and disrespectful. I felt bad and embarrassed for her and wanted to say something but thought it may embarrass her more so I didn’t. Now I wish I did.
