“I’m Sorry, What?”

This is a common saying. They’re talking to you. You know they’re talking. Sometimes being in a group conversation can put a damper on your night out. Everyone’s laughing and having a great time. There’s background noise at the restaurant and you’re trying to listen to your friends. There is now technology that can minimize the background noises but you’re not catching every word your friends are saying. You can read one persons lip but another person on the other side of the table is saying something and guess what? You miss it.

There are apps out there that can translate speech-to-text on your phone but most of it requires that your friends having to download that same app. They’re wondering why and you have to explain it to them. Another way to put a damper on your night, right? Our lives are always about explaining silly stuff that normal people don’t have to deal with. Cheers?

Sometimes we throw the cards, just laugh when everyone is laughing and nod when everyone is nodding. Secretly, we have no clue what’s going on.
