You know sitting at a table for two gives you a little privacy but when you have
tables for two lined up side by side you're not going to get much privacy in your conversation. What really bugged me was that i was having a conversation about the ship's tour that I had been on and I was describing how the various departments had made little presentations. The sanitation department made there presentation and I was telling my tablemate about their display. I described the boxes of rat poison and other products they use and then I asked my tablemate the question, "and you know what really impressed me." From the next table the fellow yells, "the rat trap."
Not a big deal but you do expect a little privacy in your conversation.
What really got me upset was that the intruder stole my punch line

This eavesdropper who I did not know and I did not know was on the tour where the giant rat traps were displayed; happened to notice the same thing I did and then before I could tell my luncheon companion about the rat traps, the eavesdropper steals my punch line by yelling out, "rat trap." Eavesdropping is one thing but stealing a punchline for a good story is unforgivable.
