Loud talkers please be aware-
I am concerned that you are involuntary subjecting me to criminal charges, and I’ll tell you why-
I’ve overheard you speak of:
your menstrual irregularities,
the painful catheter that your urologist used to treat your bladder infection,
the way you’d do a colonoscopy prep different next time… and why
the time of your very regular bowel movements,
the reason for your low sperm count,
and many such maladies.
There are HIPPA laws that are in place to protect your privacy. I realize that these conversations did not take place in a medical environment, but in crowded public areas, however, these laws do exist.
There is no exemption because you are:
in a grocery store,
in a restaurant,
on an airplane,
at the theater,
in the library,
in an elevator,
Please don’t put me at risk for violating these laws.
Lower your voice.

We often hear strange snippets of conversation as we walk through public spaces. When was the last time you overheard something so interesting, ridiculous, or disturbing you really wanted to know what it was all about?
