Put Your Cell Phone Away. Now.

Don't be this guy.

One of the most ubiquitous varities of New York pest is the person who has loud and extended phone conversations on public transit.  This is a person who seems to be oblivious to the concept of respecting another person’s space, and also seems to be extremely interested in catching up with his distant relative while you take the bus 20 blocks to the theater.  In a recent CNN blog post based on a study on people’s growing dependence on their phones, the author admonishes people to at least refrain from whipping out their phones on crowded subway stairwells, and wait till they exit the station.

This is not the kind of thing that’s a problem in, say, Kansas, where everyone drives and personal space is easy to come by, but in this city, it should be a law that you can’t yap away to your grandma/boyfriend/sister on the bus.

This issue is especially pertinent now that there are talks to implement cell phone reception underground, in the New York Subway.
