Cell Phone Etiquette


                   After a tiring day, a commuter settled down in her seat and closed her eyes.
                   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. It's Eric. I'm on the train."
                   "Yes, I know it's six thirty and not four thirty, but I had a long meeting."
                   "No, honey, not with that blonde from the accounts office. It was with the boss."
                   "No sweetheart, you're the only one in my life."
                   "Yes, I'm sure, cross my heart."
                   Fifteen minutes later, he was still talking loudly.
                   When the young woman sitting next to him had enough, she leaned over and said into the phone,
                   "Eric, hang up the phone and come back to bed."

                   Eric doesn't use his cell phone in public any longer.
