Loud Cell Phone Talker

Today, during my morning commute, an older Peruvian woman got on at Kings Hwy, cell phone against her ear. She was running her mouth like she was competing in a NASCAR race. Luckily, I had my earphones handy so I quickly protected my ears from the auditory assault.

People talking loudly on their cell phones is one of my subway riding pet peeves. I’m sure many feel the same way. I mean, no one wants to hear your business. And who the hell are you calling at 8:00am to have such animated conversations? If someone called me that early I wouldn’t pick up, unless it was my mother. But she wouldn’t be calling me from a train. Cell phone talking is one of the things I’ll put on a subway etiquette list. Thank God for earphones!!
