This reminds me of something I witnessed on the Jitney years ago and have been sorry about ever since that I did not stick up for the victim.
In the early days of cell phones, before it was common knowledge that it is tabu to talk on your cell phone on the Jitney, an obnoxious younger man was loudly talking so everyone could hear his life's story.
An elderly lady next to him asked him to lower his volume. After several painful minutes of listening to this guy, she went to the busdriver and asked him to tell the guy to get off the phone.
The driver stood up and asked him to hang up and the guy says, "I'm not going to hang up just because some old lady is bothered."
I bit my tongue and have lived to regret not sticking up for her.
