Okay, I really wish RTA would give some folks the power to enforce ettiquete on the bus. Today's bus foul? The cell phone. Okay, so you're allowed to make phone calls on the bus. That's fine. What you really shouldn't do is lean in to the central aisle so you're as close to fellow passengers as possible, and then shout into your phone to drown out the engine. Speak in a low voice, and if the bus is too loud for your party to hear you, don't yell. Just stand and move forward. If you successfully manage this, I and other fellow passengers will not be sorely tempted to snap your phone in half.
