Babbling in Public

So we're walking back to our car after a lovely al fresco lunch at CostCo, when a woman passes us, gesturing and talking to herself. My first thought was, "Wow, that woman has lost it. I hope she's gonna be OK. What should I do for her?"

Except she wasn't mentally ill - she was talking on her "hands free" cell phone. How long it will take for me to change my frame of reference so that the first thing I'll think of in this kind of situation will be "She must be on the phone"?
