One afternoon the train was nearly empty. There were around fifteen people riding in the same car as I was. We were all quietly waiting to get to our stations when a phone began to ring. A young woman pulled out her phone and began talking. At first, it was hard to tell what they were discussing. That is, until she said, "You're the only person I told. How did she know?"
I kept my face turned away from the woman, not wanting to intrude on what little privacy she had on a public train.
The woman was very upset and kept saying, "How did she find out? Did you tell anyone?" Finally, it all became clear when she said, "Then how did she know. You're the only person I told that I was pregnant."
I looked around at the other passengers and saw that they'd heard the same thing. A whole lot more people knew her secret than she realized, and I had a really good idea how others had found out.
My words of wisdom to you: If you want to keep a secret, don't talk about it in public. You never know who's listening.
