...a snapper-up of unconsidered trifles ...
Yes, but no more rude than the person answering his phone in there in the first place. This is why voice mail was invented.
Oh no! This question is going to bother me for the rest of the day!Sx
no it is not rude.
Who in his right mind would answer a phone on a pub's loo ?"Yeah, dispatcher, I'll pick them at 6:40", "WOOOSH" "Eh ? NAh, Golden Dragon, have a few ..." "BBBAAARRRFF" "Put that back in, don't ya see I'm on this fucking phone, you prick !?" "Yeah, I'll be there, no worries !"A pub's loo is where you do loo things, like pee, barf, and wash yer hands. "Not on my shoes, ye swine !" So it is noisy, and not suited for a decent conversation - bah !Strange case of multitasking.
