When you are caught in between two people having a conversation and it's really awkward
I was in complete crosstalk yesterday at the movies when the two people on my left and right were talking to each other. It was so awkward because I couldn't move anywhere.

when you can hera a person or a computer's modem on another line, only you can hear it on your line too. Crosstalk is when another signal on another line is induced onto your line. Crosstalk happens whenever wires in a telephone cable are not twisted/twisted loosely, also happened on telegraph lines earlier in this century (1900's)
I can clearly make out a neighbors conversation because of the cross-talk on the line.
