A Modal answer with band 7+

Ok, usually I don't prefer to listen to someone else talk because it could be private, and seems rude. However, a few days before, I heard a person talking with his wife, unintentionally I heard him because he was talking loudly at a public place.

As he was talking in the same language as mine. I could understand each and every word of their conversation. From their communication, the other person must have his wife because they were fighting solid for 20 minutes.

He was trying to give an explanation on his mistake he made last time. The mistake was something related to his affair that she caught him red-handed making out with his x-girlfriend. His wife seemed to be unconvinced, even though he had accepted his wrongdoing and apologized for the same.

To sum up, I think I shouldn't have listened to their communication because we are not respecting other people's private life and we must respect their privacy. Hopefully, in the future, I wouldn't involve in such an incident.
