Can You 'Read' Audiobooks?

Jason came in to say he had an issue with Gary claiming to have read a book when he'd really just listened to the audiobook: "Reading is an actual physical act...passively listening to something is different." Jason explained his reasoning at length, causing Gary to snap: "I might have to punch you in the f'ing head. Stop insulting me, Jason."

Howard thought Jason might be overstepping his bounds: "I think he's on overload. He gets very enthusiastic about his opinions now."

Gary couldn't figure out the system by which Jason picks his battles: "It's amazing the shit you get passionate about. This is so stupid in the grand scheme of things." Jason eventually backed down: "You're right. I apologize."
