I used to know someone who carried a cell phone jammer into restaurants so he could enjoy his meal, he told me it was funny hows dozens of people would try to use their phone and start complaining their phone was broken and get hysterical.

Of course these jammers are illegal, but so should talking on cell phones inside restaurants and many other places

Was at Vicksburg Civil War battlefield. They were doing cannon shooting and remembering war dead in little ceremony.

Some idiot got on cell when it rang and was chatting. I turned around, looked at her, and told her to "turn that phone off". She looked startled, and shut it off.

I did the same thing where 2 cowboys were chating away behind me at a clinic. except I said "Excuse me I would like to hear this If you need to talk could you do so elsewhere?" they both looked at me like I had some nerve till others around me looked at hem with a stern look.. they zipped it and quietly got up and left.

Don't Flatter yourself Cowboy I was looking at your Horse

My pastor gave me that look once when me and the music director were kinda acting up as he and his family sit behind me and my family. It made the whole congregation sort of bust out laughing at me and Mike getting in trouble in church like a couple of teenage boys...He threatened to separate our families if we couldn't pay attention. lmbo we still laugh about it 3 months later...

I too have the ability to 'give that look' Guess I got it from my mother.

When planes were very delayed in Chicago due to storms, the queues of people trying to get to wherever were agonisingly long.
The airport staff were doing their very best to sort things out and, although frustrating, I would rather be safe on the ground than at risk in a plane.

A man in front of me was being so rude to a young girl who was doing her best to remain polite. He was shouting at her and being the big "I am important"
Did not impress me and when he set off on his third tirade at the girl I could not but help say "Excuse me sir, is it your birthday?"
He stopped and looked at me (as did many others because this was said in my instructors voice and very English posh accent!
"He looked at me askance and said "No, it isn't. Why?"
"Oh." says I, "I thought you were giving yourself a birthday treat by being so rude and ungrateful but obviously it is just your normal way of speaking to people."

All around just burst out laughing and the man picked up his bag and stomped off.

Its the downside of the modern age - too many people seem to think that everyone else should want to listen to their conversations.
I have a delightful 'if looks could kill' stare and I've never been known to hold back on speaking my mind
Well done OP - the world needs more like you.
