I am all for PDA (public displays of affection) -- just not in every public place. The reason for this rant? I was sitting in the hospital waiting room as my grandmother had surgery and the couple across from me started kissing. It totally skeeved me out. For one thing, I was sitting right there. Secondly, it was a hospital for Christ’s sake. With that weird antiseptic smell and all those germs wafting around, I barely wanted to take a deep breath, much less go in for some major tongue action. Yuck! Check out the 10 other places you should never make out with your man.
- Airplane seat. It’s bad enough listening to a snorer or a screaming baby, but I guarantee no other passenger wants to hear you slurp your way through the in-flight movie.
- Function at your child’s school. This is more annoying than gross. No one needs to be reminded you are probably having more sex than they are.
- Dressing room. You may think no one has a clue what is going on, but those folks to the left and the right totally know what you are up to. Get a room!
- Cemetery. What about this setting could possibly stir romantic feelings? CREEPY!
- Wedding. I am sure it reminds you of the day you said, 'I do,' but save it for later. PLEASE.
- Bathroom stall. Nothing says romance like a public restroom, right? And why would you want to get busy in a place where total strangers take a dump?
- Stairwell at work. That's just what I want to see -- two people pawing at each other like ferrets while I'm running to a meeting.
- Movie theater. It's a cliche, but people still actually do it and it's beyond distracting and annoying.
- Beach. Yes, there is a drink called Sex on the Beach, but please don't take that literally. That is not what anyone else on vacation came to see. Reserve it for your hotel room.
- In line at the grocery store. Way to make everyone lose their appetite. Can't you at least wait until you get into the parking lot?
