lol this idea is kinda of stupid imo. why waste yur time looking 4 the card. just go up to their face and ask them to lower their voice.

Yeah, forget the cards.  Just sit next to them, call your friend, and start talking louder than they are.  Yeah yeah… two wrongs don’t make a right, but oh well =D it would be fun to do.
