It idles for a minute, she starts to notice, wondering when they're going to shut it off. They don't. Pretty soon she starts to fume. I mean we live with the GDed roar of engines often enough. When you get into a zone where you sort of expect people will shut the engine off after they arrive it could be annoying to have some diesel idle going non stop.

It's a bit weird for people to assert that their li'l girl just cannot get her nap, ya'all, w/o a 200hp/300ft.lb. engine idling away to run the AC. Holy $h!t batperson, we've turned into a nation of wussies.

The woman was over the top a PITA, no question. Under the right circumstances, I could see myself questioning the gentleman's conduct, and instructing him to shut the damn thing off. Ain't no truck stop here, bubba.
