Eric's phone call

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 its Eric, Im on the train yes, I know its 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, youre the only one in my life yes, Im sure, cross my heart etc., etc."

Fifteen minutes later, he was still talking loudly , pledging his fidelity.

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, get off that stupid phone and come back to bed!

Eric doesn’t use his cell phone in public any more.

Baaahahaha!!! Love it!! Some people are so rude with cell phones!! I wish less people used them in public! I was in a drug store a few years ago...trying to get to the register to pay for my few items. There was a woman at the register checking out and she was on her cell. The cashier was trying to ask her a question about her purchase so she could finish ringing it up. This woman very rudely told the cashier..."Shhhhhh, can't you see I'm on the phone" and then apologized to the person she was talking to about how rude this cashier was and continued her conversation while several of us stood in line waiting for her to get off the phone so we could make our purchases. I wanted to punch her in the face to say the least! I felt terrible for this cashier and told her how rude I felt this woman was in a voice I'm sure this woman heard as she left the drug store! Grrrrr

Had I been the cashier, i'd have closed her transaction, asked (told) her to step aside and took care of the next customer...yeah, I'm a bitch like that...
And the woman thought the cashier was rude???? what a trip she is...

She was a trip. She was a realtor on the phone with a client. Should have taken care of business elsewhere in my opinion!

wonder if she does that when she's with a client and another one calls??? not very professional!! Takes all kinds huh?

I would have done the same thing, Jan, had I been the cashier. There's a time and place for everything and in public is not the time nor place to be on a personal phone call.
