You’re all set to dive into the latest best seller on your cross-country flight or complete a proposal due upon landing. But your seat mate pulls out his/her cell phone and starts gabbing away.
“Hey, guess where I’m calling from,” you might hear. Then, it’s hours of “blah-blah-blah” while you’re trying to read, work, relax or watch the movie.
