Fly Day

Guy at the gate was FaceTiming, I’m assuming, his wife/girlfriend before boarding. A business man turns to him and expresses his annoyance, followed up by “if she was here in person it’d be different"

I can’t figure out if you are taking sides with the man FaceTiming or the business man or if you are just describing a situation. Either way, my $0.02 is FaceTiming without headphones in public is worse than speaker phone in public with headphones, and is right on par with playing phone games with volume up and no headphones in public. I see no issue with letting people know it’s annoying!

Also, gentle reminder that while you’re free to post whatever you want in any bowl, this one is generally used for fly day photos so your post would get more traction in the main bowl.

“But come on man”. The unassuming guy FaceTiming his lady friend says to her, “guess I have to go because this big bad business man is annoyed by the sound of your voice over FaceTime.” And the business man says in return “you don’t have to be a dick about it.” He doesn’t have to be? What about your self absorbed assumption that it’s all about you? I’ve never witnessed something like that before...

Agree with the above: wrong bowl for this topic and using FaceTime w/o headphones (or calls on speakerphone) in public merits annoyance and feedback. FaceTime man is the self-absorbed asshole not big bad business man.

Frustrated by how volatile GMAT verbal scoring is. In my previous 3 practice tests, I got V44 on each of them. Took my final practice test today and got V38 with only one more question wrong than usual 🤭
