      social protocol of not being allowed to talk to someone 'otherwise engaged' which often-times is completely ludicrous.  But still there are lots of people who have their headphones on for half an hour while they're waiting to take off, etc.  I don't treat that as a barrier--it's just a convention to have phones on.  If someone really doesn't want to interact, I'm happy to take the hint.
