Old people often criticise teenages, but I am an oldie criticising oldies.
Recently at an opera the people in the row behind chattered incessantly. Dirty looks had no effect. Exactly the same thing happened at a U3A meeting spoiling the interesting talk that was being given and this happens repeatedly. These chatterers seem completely unaware of the disturbance they are causing and seem to have no manners. If they don’t want to listen why go in the first place? They could chat in a cafe over a cup of tea.
