26. Courtesy

is becoming a thing of the past. All that means is consideration of others.
The article does not describe what the actual disturbance was so it is hard to conclude much. Was it yelling, shrieking, or constant loud speaking? I doesn't say.

Some people are sensitive to sound and people who wear hearing aids can have pain from louds sounds. I recall a girl about 12 once yelled as loud as she could while next to my sister (we had just entered a store) and my sister grabbed her head in pain. Her father A 12 year old yelling inside of a store in inappropriate but she never learned that.

I was having a late lunch with a friend in a restaurant. There was only one other table occupied by a couple. The woman put her phone on speaker and talked very loudly while she was eating her food. It was difficult for my friend and I to hear each other. My friend asked the waitress to ask the woman to be more quiet and she did.

Consideration of others answers most of these problems. There is an expectation of a restaurant being a place to peacefully eat a meal, especially since one is paying for the privilege.
