could you not?

Have you ever been out in public and heard someone talking way too loudly on the phone? Of course you have. Does it bother you? Well, it only bothers me when people are shouting, talking extra-loudly, or being obnoxious in general.
I find it quite irritating when someone hops on the bus and talks on the phone very loudly— like, I don’t really want to hear your business. If the conversation is quiet, it’s not bad. I really don't mind people speaking on the phone in public. It's just when they talk really, really loud!
On buses and trams I regularly get people talking on the phone sooo loudly, I can't even hear myself think. I don't know whether it's a hearing issue or a connection issue.
The other day, I was coming back home, when a girl started to talk on the phone super loud that every single person in the bus could hear what she was saying. Guys, I had headphones as I was listening to some music, but they were not enough. It was a torture. I've improved my ability to concentrate, but I couldn't win over this noise. She was having a loud, animated conversation on her phone. It was impossible not to tune her out. I learned that her sister-in-law had gippy tummy, her best friend's husband was cheating on his wife, and that the guy (she was seeing) wanted to be more than friends with benefits.

Do you know the types of people who only contact you when they need something? You don't hear from them for days, weeks or sometimes even months. Or you'll eventually get a call out of the blue not to find out how things are, but ONLY to ask for a favour.
To be honest, there are some individuals in my social circle who never talk to me on a personal level. And then- whenever they need help with something, that's only when they contact me through Facebook or texting. And they don't even ask how I'm doing either. As soon as I give them help or provide them with an answer- that's when the conversation ends. I try to follow up with a "So how've you been doing?" or something of that sort, but it usually doesn't end up going anywhere because their intention, really, was to just get out an answer from me (sigh).
That's pretty much the unfortunate truth of society.
I don't know about you guys, but I have the maximum respect for people who actually ask me how I feel or how I've been doing. People who show interest in me instead of simply using my knowledge and resources to help themselves.
