Don't Talk So Loud!

I'm travelling today on a trip to meet a family member.   On the initial flight last night I was tired (getting ready to be gone is sometimes as much work as it is to actually stay be at work).  

I pulled out a book to read on the flight and couldn't help but overhear the conversations from a couple of rows back.  Boy, were they loud as they carried on about their careers and their lives and such.  I thought they were extremely friendly, extremely fast.

Have you ever been a part of one of those "awkward" times on a flight?
