The following news story, which occurred some time ago in the USA (where else) has just been brought to my attention and I thought I might share it with you, together with some Bloggers replies: A 39 year old woman passenger, Lekaysha Beard of Tigrid, Oregon, was pulled off an Amtrak train by police at Salem in Oregon, after passengers complained that she was speaking too loudly on her cellphone for 16 hours, non-stop, in a Quiet Zone carriage of the passenger train where cellphones are banned. She complained that she felt "disrespected" by the way she had been treated - despite the fact she acted aggressively towards other passengers and refused to comply with all reasonable requests from other passengers and train conductors. She had allegedly been talking non-stop since boarding at Oakland, California until being removed at Salem, Oregon, aided by Amtrak's charging points to keep her cellphone topped up. Bloggers replies (try to guess their ethnicity) * Good ! She was disrespectful to other passengers. * Other passengers should have just kept quiet and thrown on a pair of earphones. * I can't believe Amtrak, - not a legitimate reason to be thrown off a train. * My opinion doesn't matter, its up to Amtrak who operates the train. * Those other passengers must be racists * I always find it ironic that whenever people like to annoy, irritate and aggrevate others, its always them who say they are disrespected.
