Yesterday, I was running late leaving work so I jumped in a cab to go to the train station. We stopped at a light on the way and pulled up next to a car with the windows open. The two people inside were having an argument and the man was clearly very upset. He was shouting “You say that you love me and you say you want to be with me, but you don’t do anything to make me believe it. You have to show your feelings with your actions.”
I felt terrible for listening in, but I couldn’t tear myself away from the drama. And to be fair…the guy was yelling so loudly that I really couldn’t help but hear.
As he choked back tears, he continued…”No matter what I do for you, it’s just never enough. I don’t know what you want from me.”
I was very relieved when the light changed and we were able to drive away and no longer witness this. It was starting to feel almost creepy to be listening anymore.
The moral of the story and the point of my sharing it is…don’t fight in public because you never know who is listening. Best to do that kind of thing behind closed doors.
So tell me…have you ever witnessed something that clearly should have been private, but you were unable to look away?
