The Bus Phone Caller

I don't know how many other people are annoyed by this, but have you ever sat on a bus with a person who sits down near you or even next to you and whips out their cell phone.  Now I'm not really talking about the person who holds idle conversation while riding the bus. 

"Hello?  Hey.  Yeah.  I'll be back soon.  Oh really?  Cool...  Yeah cool.  Alright.  Later...  No, 5 minutes.  Later."

I'm talking about the people that really get into their personal shit while on the phone.  It makes me slightly annoyed and uncomfortable at the same time.  Believe it or not.  This was an actual phone call that a girl made while sitting next to me on the bus.  It was pretty uncomfortable.  Judge for yourself.

"Hello?  Hi Mom!  Yeah, everything is going fine...  What?  No... I though you took care of that?"

....

"STOP YELLING AT ME MOM!"

"I'M NOT UPSET!"

"I'M NOT UPSET!"

"WHEN YOU YELL AT ME I GET UPSET!"

*sniff sniff*

"no... NO!  I'M ON THE BUS!"

"NO!  Bye... I'll talk to you later.  BYE!"

I am sorry that you got upset, but I think everyone here on the bus could have done without that quick glimpse into your life.  It was just really uncomfortable for everyone on the bus.  I mean everyone got quiet and tried to look everywhere but at you.  She got off at the next bus stop.  Now don't you think that outburst could have waited the 5 minutes until she got off the bus and maybe back to her apartment?  God dammit.
