Can't help but laugh.

Again, via Websters, interfere means "to enter into the affairs of others".  Thought that's what we were talking about.  And according to my attorney, I let her talk without listening in or butting in or interjecting my opinion.  That is, she is allowed to have a "private" conversation with her Mother.  I'm done.  

On another note:  I just wish the REAL Soc was here; he was an immense help to a lot of us, and would not have stood for me messing around on "his" Board.  I guess I am in "withdrawal"; although I rarely post anymore, I do tend to "check-in", and throw in a word of encouragement every now and then.  His wisdom (and wit) are sorely missed.

It's interesting that you chose the SECOND definition (at least from dictionary.com). The FIRST definition is:

"to come into opposition, as one thing with another, esp. with the effect of hampering action or procedure (often fol. by with): Constant distractions interfere with work."

Listening in on a conversation wouldn't fit that definition as long as she's not preventing you from talking.

As I said, the real answer probably depends on local practice.
