It was not pleasant at all.
Me and my daughter went to the city last Saturday to shop for my daughter's school bag. She did not like her bag anymore because of the fairy designs. It does not fit in her age anymore. We took a bus going to the city. It is just five minutes with the bus. While we were waiting for the bus in the bus stop, there was a girl who was talking to her friends in Manhattan via cellphone. Her loud voice caught the attention of the other passengers. It is always irritating and annoying when you hear the conversations of other people in their cellphones especially in a public place. I heard everything they were talking about. They are in Long Island because one of their friends will get married. The couple hired a Nassau county limo to bring them to the hotel where the wedding was held. A nice wedding car, indeed. Renting a limo with a driver is the most comfortable way of visiting a new place. The driver guides you wherever you go. So, no other comfort you can expect than having a limo with a driver. They took a Suffolk county limo in going to the eastern part of Long Island.
I did not know how the conversations ended because we had to step out. For me this attitude of talking aloud in the cellphone is a public disturbance ;) Is not it annoying and disturbing hearing those laughs and yells?
We roamed around the city for almost three hours, in and out the shopping stores. I found bags which she did not like and vice versa. We had a lot of arguments in selecting a school bag. She found some bags too big and too small. It was already quarter after three I told her, "This is the last store if you cannot find something we have to go home because I am already tired." Luckily she was able to find the bag she liked in that store.
It was a tiresome afternoon!
