I take public transportation to and from work each day, and normally it's a quiet and easy-going experience. However, earlier this week I was heading home and ran into a bit of a snag. It all began when a woman got on the train talking quite loudly on her cell phone. After a few minutes, we headed into a tunnel (which equals no cell service) so she got off the call before she lost reception. I thought things were "back on track" so to speak, until she started blaring music from her phone! This was an old flip phone — obviously not the best method of listening to your tunes — but she proceeded to let it play, no matter if it was really audible with the noise of the train, or the buzzing and hissing noises that were coming from the speaker from it being turned up too loud. But, you're never going to believe what happened when the person next to her asked her to turn it down!

She began singing along with the track, virtually ignoring her fellow rider's request! I was shocked! Besides the fact that there is a rule on our city busses and trains that you have to use headphones when listening to music, this woman showed absolutely no common courtesy to her fellow riders. Lesson to be learned? Don't blast music from your cell phone — it's not a boom box!
