A lesson learnt 83

After a tiring day, a commuter settled down in his seat and closed his eyes. As the train rolled out of the station, a woman sitting next to him pulled out her mobile phone.

She started talking in a loud voice: “Hi sweetheart. It’s Sue. I’m on the train”. “Yes, I know it’s the 6:30 and not the 4:30, but I had a long meeting”. “No, honey, not with that Kevin from the accounting office. It was with the boss”. “No sweetheart, you’re the only one in my life”. “Yes, I’m sure, cross my heart!”

15 minutes later, she was still talking loudly. When the man sitting next to her had enough, he leaned over and said into the phone, “Sue, hang up the phone and come back to bed”.

Sue doesn’t use her mobile phone in public any longer.

  1. Was on a guided tour of the Icons of Fashion Exhibition and a mother and daughter spent the whole tour texting and answering calls. Was distracting for others and one wonders why people bother to be in a live interactive environment when all they do is play with electronic devices!
