Private lives in public spaces

As much as I would love to have Internet access while commuting by subway, I’d rather it be limited. Currently, internet access is available at certain stops along subway lines. It’s bad enough as a commuter who has to commute by bus and train that I am exposed to loud one way conversations of someone’s supposedly private life. I don’t need to have that follow me onto the train.

There is a growing number of people who talk loudly on the cell phone. It’s obnoxious. And it’s from people of all nationalities and age and sex though I have to say a majority of the loud talkers tend to be women and Hispanic. Sometimes there will be loud Indi-Paki women. Their voices also tend to be pitchy (no, not bitchy).

But I guess it is inevitable. Another behavior people will abuse while traveling via public transportation.
