Finally, some comedy in the thread. Maybe the part of the South you come from is different from the part I grew up in?

From my experience, there are two traditionally-southern options for a response:
  1. If you are small and/or a woman, use polite passive aggression, as in "wow that sure is a naaace phone you got their, too bad you hayaaave to shaaout intew it to be heard. Eeis it braewken? Eit lewks expayinsive--must've kawst you a munth's pay aet leayist!" This approach works best if you have long red fingernails and two-inch-thick makeup.
  2. If you are a man, and larger than the person on the phone, threaten to beat the crap out of the person on the phone. "Do I have to kick someone's ass today?", "You ain't frum around here, ah kayn tayel..." "My dad is the sheriff and we can make you disappear", etc.
Option 1 is preferred...because in a polite setting like the library you have to act nice. But, it's totally OK if you do it in a mean-spirited, back-stabbity way.

I always look at it from the other person's perspective. While it may be some @$$ who always has a phone glued to their ear, you never know what the other person's situation is. Could it be a very important call?
Let's see... maybe it's a call from an inexperienced passenger who valiantly defeated the terrorists and now only this one airline pilot in the library is available to safely talk him in.

I hadn't really considered that possibility.

If those were your personal observations, then yep it's totally different.

It sounds like Tekhedd's South is limited to the Ozarks.

SeoulMage has much to be proud of
I like Kiernan's south better.

...and after reading this thread, I'm going to start turning my phone off when I go into the library.

There's a sign on the library door that says to turn your phone off.

She's a priestess and healing spells are necromantic, so it kinda figures.
