But the absolutele worse habit of them all, is these people who find it necessary (or even acceptable...) to eat, while trying to have a conversation with me. It is not only rude and inconsiderate, it's disgusting and shows a total lack of even the most basic human relations skills. Be advised, you slovenly, bovine, pig-headed, ill-raised, slack-jawed, malodorous, cheesy-leather, electric donkey, bottom-biters... When I hear you sapping away or deafening me with the crunching of whatever you're stuffing into that great pit of yours, I will greet you with but one line: "When you are done eating, Sir/Ma'am... please feel free to call us back and we'll be more than happy to provide you with any information you might be looking for... Thank you!"
