Quietly

I stack the shelves.

I get a tap on the shoulder.

A young man is on his mobile.

“Oi. Do you mind? Please can you shut up?

I’m on the phone to a mate.

It is extremely rude to talk while I am on the phone.

Yes, I am telling him how rude he is. I know.

I go back to quietly filling the shelves.
