Stranger wanted me to see his offending text

DEAR MISS MANNERS: Shortly after boarding my plane today, I noticed that the passenger sitting next to me had his mask under his nose. In a very polite tone, I asked him, “Would you please put your mask over your nose?”

He replied that masks were “ineffective,” to which I replied, again in a perfectly civil tone, “Science says otherwise, so we must agree to disagree.”

He grumbled, pulled up his mask and typed a message on his phone in very large type that he was sitting next to a “mask Nazi” and a “(misogynist expletive)”.

From the size of the writing and the angle he was holding his phone I deduced he wanted me to see the news, but having young children I recognized this outburst for what it was: an immature and guilt-ridden reaction to being caught doing what not to do. I refused the bait and opened my book. Stranger wanted me to see his offending text
