There you are in the hallway. A friend joins you and before you know it, you are having a confidential conversation. The problem is that you are in a public space.
If you want to have a private conversation, go to a private place. Don’t get mad that others overhear your hallway conversation.
Many a time I have had a hallway conversation, only to have a staff member laugh at one of our jokes. I like to then call out, “Hey, this is a private hallway conversation.” The staff member knows that I am poking fun at myself for thinking that anything said in a public place would be private. It is a reminder to me. Move to a private place for confidential conversations.
