Mo­bile phones and pub­lic trans­port

The Irish Times - - Comment & Letters -

Sir, – Am I alone in be­ing reg­u­larly ha­rassed by self­ish peo­ple who in­sist on ei­ther play­ing videos or mak­ing speaker-calls on their mo­bile phones on pub­lic trans­port, es­pe­cially trains?

Why do these self­ish in­di­vid­u­als think it is ac­cept­able to in­flict their noise on fel­low pas­sen­gers?

It is a fur­ther de­cline in ba­sic man­ners and gen­eral be­hav­iour in gen­eral.

Ev­ery rail jour­ney is cer­tainly a very far cry from those utopian TV com­mer­cials! – Yours, etc,

JON LEWIS, Mullingar,

Co West­meath.
