When a person is talking loudly on the phone in a public place I will generally move to their location and talk just as loud to someone around, or just pull my phone and act as if I'm in a conversation.
It irritates folks and prompts them to their being an idiot.

Hang it up Jigger. The moment the ZOMG!!! G-U-N came into the picture everyone lost complete sight of the point you were trying to make. It's like asking for a pork chop in kosher deli.

Yes, people have become so callously oblivious and inconsiderate of their fellow human beings, it's no wonder someone occasionally flips out and does something insane and dangerous to themselves and others.

sigh. Forget the gun. You're all obsessed with the gun! My focus is on the babbling twit who will think she wasn't annoying at all and will continue to yap away and P*** people off.


Excuse me, but people yap on buses, and sometimes louder than others may care for. There didn't need to be a phone conversation, even a real one would have ticked this lady off.

Shes a prime example of people that shouldn't be allowed to have guns, because of how quick they are to pull them out in a public place, for the craziest of reasons.

Some may find your op to be like that of a babbling twit, is it ok if someone pulls a gun on you because you could be considered irritating?
Meh...didn't think so.

All over some yapping?

LOL, that's a good one ! I do understand Jigger's point, and part of this problem I think is generational, I am constantly having to tell my 21 yr old daughter to speak softer on the cell phone, why do people scream in them, including myself I have been told, so I make a real effort to be more aware of my volume when in public.

I also notice that kids will use foul language in ear shot of adults these days, I would have never said the F word in front of adults as a kid, lol, now with my friends away from the adults we played with "coloful" language.


My guess is this lady went nuts over more then just the cell phone, perhaps the context of her conversation, that all could hear, was in some way offensive? I don't know, with everything we have being thrown at us, I understand why people loose thier cool, I have done it, lol, I would suggest it's a bad idea to cut in front of me in line....thankfully I don't carry a gun.....I do find the "icey" glare can be quite effective.....

You can't expect to police everyones conversation in public..and she could have been talking loud because she needed to heard because of a bad connection. Even if she did let the f bomb drop, people need to have a little more tolerance , and can't expect everyone to have the same views on what words are considered appropriate during a phone conversation.

I suggest for those who can't handle bus conversations to have with them a small set of earplugs that they can conveniently put into their ears for a few minutes if need be. Unless the woman talking was way out of control, this is what is to be expected in "public" situations, and people need to chill on the policing of every little thing in public.

I can't believe that people who abhor an over policed nanny state would start complaining about a loud phone conversation, and claim it is "sane" to pull a gun out in public, because someone has irritated them.

You have to remember there's a stupid belief among liberals that a person can say anything they want to without any repercussions of any sort, and you have to sit down and take it. Nobody has to give a damned about how a person feels or that they're getting hurt. You have to sit there and let a person antagonize you all to hell and back.

That's the real reason why they want to take your guns. Because they enjoy hurting people and don't want anybody fighting against them.

okay so if im using public transportation
and i get a call from lets say my mother
its okay to flip out on me for using my phone just because you
never learned how to mind your own business?

ever heard of earphones? earplugs? maybe music? audiobooks?

yeah sometimes its annoying especially if youre having a bad day but if you dont wanna deal with it
go home another way

needless to say intelligent people wouldnt pull out a gun on somebody for being on the phone

holy moly. the crazy woman with the gun MOVED away from the talking girl which is exactly what you should do. then she pulls a GUN and they get into a fight.

first off, the woman on the phone is ANNOYING. people are annoying. if you don't like them move away or don't ride the bus or... whatever you need to do. that girl had every right to be annoying. she wasn't HARMING anyone and talking on a phone on a bus is hard because of the street noise.

while i agree that rudeness is at epidemic levels we CAN attempt to remove ourselves from it.



i totally understand that this sort of thing makes people "crack" but the woman with the gun has obvious anger issues and i have more of a problem with a gun toting hot head than i do with a dingbat talking too loud on her phone!!!!!

Right--that's why all the conservatives and "constitutionalists" yell about free speech anytime something offensive is said.

Is this opposite day or something? I've only heard that it's "bleeding heart liberals" that want to ban free speech.

A gun is the wrong tool for the job, here.

This is the right one.

I'm with the signal jammer... I'm suprised they aren't used more often on places you don't want calls. A local bar was driving me insane because every time I went in for a quiet drink they'd have some rowdy soccer match playing on the tv... Say anything? Nope, I bought a £1 universal remote, kept it in my pocket, and every time a goal looked like it was about to be scored I flicked the channel over. Okay, I admit that was a cruel thing to do, but problem solved... Remembering the staff trying everything from replacing their remote batteries twice to physically belting the hell out of the tv still makes me smile though ;-)

How can you defend someone who goes into a rage and pulls a DEADLY weapon on someone because they're annoying
If the girl on the cell phone is that annoying get off the bus at the next stop and wait for another bus. This woman obviously has some rage issues.

If i pulled a gun on everyone who irritated me during the day I'd be on a first name basis with the bail bondsman

This is why I can't allow myself to have a gun. I live on the corner of a 4-way intersection. One of my neighbors has a couple of collies that bark at EVERYTHING all day long. Motorcycles rape the quiet of the night and wake me up in a rage. People set off fireworks in the middle of the intersection - the big booming ones. All around me there's blaring Spanish, Arab, and crap teen music.

Oh yeah, I could very easily lose it and become that woman if I owned a gun.

Clearly there was something more going on here. The gun woman was fed up with something even before she got on the bus. She chose to focus on the female with the phone while the hero of this story was also on a phone.

And, therein lies the problem. You have just pointed out how social responsibility (a total disregard for others) has utterly disintegrated in our modern world.

Pulling a gun on someone because they are on their phone and you don't like it...to me is not the act of a right thinking person. I think all of us need to be ever watchful for our safety and our loved ones safety.

A couple of years ago I was riding the bus; and a pretty young woman got on; paid her fare and sat in the front of the bus talking very loudly on her cell phone. The driver asked her to tone it down and to please move to the back of the bus to have her conversation. She looked at him like he was crazy; said "yeah right" and continued talking without moving; like the whole world revolved around her. She had the attitude of like...I'm pretty' I'm young and I can do what I want.

The bus driver asked her again to move to the back; and she refused and said she was staying where she was. The driver then stopped the bus; stood up and told her to get off the bus now! Several people on the bus clapped. She stood up; somewhat in shock; and got off the bus.

This situation was handled without violence; and to me is the way a situation of this kind should be handled.
