The RidicuList: 'Cell Phone Lady'

Editor's note: A woman's 16-hour cell phone conversation on an Amtrak "quiet car" earns her a spot on AC360's RidicuList.

    I am surprised the passenger lasted 16 hours before they even said anything at all...I would not be able to last 1 hour let alone 16 hours...lol And then if she had gotten beligerent with me i think i would have snatched that phone out of her hand and throw it out of the window

    I love all the stuff you digged up what we could do in 16 hrs. LOL
    You may not believe me but there was a young lady during my finals in college on Monday who had earphones and talked,( no doubt she was on the phone) during the exam. Our professor eventually stepped in!!!!! LOL

    I lived in Chicago all my life and this anti-social behaviour is typical. I'd love to see a story on that. Why did I know what this lady looked like, before the showed her picture?

    Anderson asks "...what could someone talk about for 16 hours'? Anderson could blasts Conservatives for much longer than 16 hours! He's very good at that!

    Here is what is going to happen, though: somehow, someway, this will become a "racially motivated incident" as loud talking on the cell phone is "part of her culture". She will sue Amtrak for millions, and to avoid the possibility of losing millions, Amtrak will settle with her and her attorneys for maybe 50K-100K. You may or may not hear about it in the media, but that is the likely scenario.

    AC you are completely correct; how can someone talk on the phone non-stop for 16 hours, that's 8 hours short of a whole day! Unbelievable. Not to talk of the fact that she was in a train and worse still, in the part of the train that talkative individuals like her should not venture into. She should be charged and sent to the space where she will live alone and talk non-stop for the rest of her life. I don't like folks that have no regard for other people!

    I just want to know, what phone does she have that she can talk for 16 hours without it dying?!?! That's an amazing battery.

    Anderson: You asked what she could be talking about for 16 hours... I want to know where she got that battery!

    I would like to know what brand of the cellular phone she was using that could last so long? Also the service provider that provides such a good service during almost 600 miles travel without any disconnection, even when the train was in a tunnel, maybe.

    Of course, she's rude and insensitive, but what I really want to know is what cell phone did she use that has a battery that operates for 16 hours? My battery gives out after an hour.

    The train conductors who didn't boot her to another train car immediately should make the Ridiculist.

    Some people just have to take things to the extreme and just be rude about it.I personally have a pet peeve about cell phones and public places,you just can not get people to change their ways, too bad. Some people just have to be annoying that's the way they are wired.
