Does it count as eavesdropping when you can’t hear what’s being said? A bagel-shopping FrontBurnervian shares this encounter:
Stopped off at Einstein’s Bagels in Preston Center this morning. As I was about to take a seat, the body language of the men at the table next to me indicated they needed a little privacy. I naively obliged and sat down a couple of tables away with my back facing their table. Shortly thereafter, they were apparently joined by another guy and the conversation level elevated to where I could hear them talking but didn’t pay attention to their conversation. Damnit!!! When I got up to leave, I re-filled my drink. The third guy was Don Hill. Then, as I was walking out the door, in walks Robert Riggs. Double Damnit!!! Oh how I wish it was a coincidence, but I really think it wasn’t.
