I am sure that you felt as bad as I felt just a few days ago.
I was talking to a friend at a party, we were having an engaged conversation and somebody came over and whispered into her ear. Right in front of me. I actually dropped my jaw. This was rude in a crazy way. I decided that acting out at the event would have been unneccesary, but I did want to share this as an In Poor Taste post. I thought that this was rude on the whisperer's part as well as the one doing the listening. I feel like she should have stopped the offender as opposed to leaning in and listening to whatever was being said. It was as if I became immediately invisible!
The Reasons Why Whispering is Rude:
- It makes the person who is not whispered to feels alienated.
- It is like speaking another language in front of another person.
- It makes the other person feel like you must be speaking about them, why wouldn’t you share that conversation outloud?
Places that it is acceptable to whisper:
- The Library
- The Hospital
- The Movies
- While somebody is resting
It is more appropriate to ask the person that you need to talk to if you can go into a private place and talk to them if it is urgent or wait until you are actually alone or out of public company.
