From what I gathered, someone was about to get their feelings hurt. My fellow elevator passenger, a neighbor (we don’t know each other) was advising that they keep the ring until they’re sure. Something about me must’ve seemed trustworthy as she proceeded to put someone’s business out on the street in an elevator. Beware, you never know who’s on the elevator with you, she could be an etiquette blogger!
I couldn’t figure out who was on the other end or how upset they were. That’s the problem with halfersations; you’ll never get the whole story, she went on and on with her half. She didn’t even bother to whisper an apology. If you have to take a call, keep it brief and let the caller know you’re on an elevator. To continue a conversation while others are on an elevator is a downright diss to them - they don't matter.
Chatty Cathy remained on the elevator and continued to advise the ring bearer. I'll never know the outcome and I don't care. All I do know, she is one rude neighbor.
