Cell phone in public....a lesson in manners..................

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Peters Realty SB065509

After a very busy day, a commuter settled down in her seat and closed her eyes as the train departed Montreal for Hudson. 

As the train rolled out of the station, the guy sitting next to her pulled out his cell phone and started talking in a loud voice: "Hi sweetheart it's Eric, I'm on the train - yes, I know it's the six thirty and not the four thirty but I had a long meeting - no, honey, not with that floozie from the accounts office, with the boss. No sweetheart, you're the only one in my life - yes, I'm sure, cross my heart . . . " etc., etc.

Fifteen minutes later at St. Anne de Bellevue he was still talking loudly, when the young woman sitting next to him, who was obviously angered by his continuous diatribe, yelled at the top of her voice:
 
"Hey, Eric, turn that stupid phone off and come back to bed!"

My guess would be that Eric doesn't use his cell phone in public any longer.

Cell phones are so much of our lives that we seldom think about the impact on those around.  Thank you for bringing this to our attention.  I would have loved to see Eric try to talk his way out of that one.

What a smooth talker Eric is I bet he learned his lesson. We do need to be aware of others while in public using our cell phones.
