Girl on iPad at Starbucks

I'm trying to work on a screenplay, but the girl nearby is on her iPad with some guy. Imagine this in an annoying Disney Channel/Nickelodeon actress' voice:

Like, go see the world, you know, you're 20 years old, you need to grow up, you know? It was like, it was like common ground type of breakup, but she was like, you know, kinda dating other people in front of him and he was like really upset, you know? It was like his first girlfriend, so it's kinda sad.

I'm like eating a banana and you're telling me I'm pretty. You're prettier...

It goes on and on and on... Ugh!

Just burst into wild laughter and she'll leave.

Good thought. I may try that if I find a good opportunity. I'm thinking this is someone mom and step-dad don't approve of based on her not doing this at home, plus some of the context of her conversation.

I was hanging with some friends at 3 am at ihop and there were some annoying 20-somethings(i'm 19) being loud and annoying. So i burst into hysterical laughter for about 30 seconds. They shut up.

That's fantastic! I've regained my focus now. I was even able to write some bacon into the script. That has to be a good sign.

Dug into my laptop bag and found headphones. Lady next to me put in earplugs. No joke.
