I was inspired to write this short humorous story by the incidences of high tech social rudeness that has become socially common place. I want my reader to experience how some one's self absorbed actions can rein some other person's special moment.
Picture yourself having planned and saved for a special night out with the one you love. You are taking them to a romantic fine dinning restaurant to celebrate your love. You both go out secretly to by the sharpest clothes that money can buy,to enhance your sex appeal . The restaurant atmosphere is dripping with romance.
the lighting is low,the flames from the candles on your table reflect off your wine glasses, and dance in your lover's eyes as you gaze into them. There is a violinist playing love songs as he mingle among the tables. The waiter places your mouth watering steak before you, and just before you take that first savory bite, you hear the man who is sitting at the next table, having a conversation on his cell phone," DOC, I CAN MAKE MY APPOINTMENT FOR TOMORROW AT 7:00PM TO HAVE MY HEMORRHOIDS LANCED."
