In this city, where manners count, I've developed a policy with regards street shooting: I don't interrupt people when they're on the phone. Sometimes I'll take a shot, catch their eye, smile with a thumb's up, they smile back, I keep going.
Not this guy. He saw me shoot him and said (to the phone) 'Hold on.' (to me): 'You could have asked, you know.'
Me: But you were on the phone.
Him: But you could have asked.
(Meanwhile, I'm taking another shot, and he's still on the phone.)
Him: That's okay. Next time you just ask.
We went out separate ways, and he continued his conversation. And he was absolutely right. Next time, I'm asking!
Mr. Dot has been saying he's gonna start wearing bow ties for years. Honey, if you're reading this: little less talk, just go for it.
