Last time I went to a live gig, there was a young couple who arrived a little late, and almost immediately the lad was on the phone. Bear in mind that this is the sort of gig where I wear earplugs, his yacking was distracting. After a while I just casually asked if he'd be on the phone all evening, he asked me if it was annoying me, I answered in the affirmative.

He at least had the decency to step outside to carry on, but shortly his young lady companion also left and I don't think they saw more than a few minutes of the performance - I assume something came up.

The tickets weren't cheap, so I do have to wonder at the mentality of some people.
