I am so self-conscious about talking on my cell phone on any form of public transportation. I just know that everyone, else, sitting quietly is eavesdropping. Am I narcissistic? No — I just know because I totally eavesdrop! What? Everybody does it.
So I'm actually in pretty much total support of Austria's cracking down on cell phone use on the bus — they want to make it so that cell phone use of any kind is prohibited on the public trans. How much would this affect you? Do you regularly talk on your phone on the bus, train, or any other overtly public place?
