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!!
