While I understand the need for phones during an emergency while on the subway, the idea of allowing for cell phone use in the MTA has annoying written all over it. Does this mean those flippin’ highly irritating Nextel phones will work, too? This is just what we need, more totally pointless seemingly one-person conversations while experiencing the countless other pleasantries of the MTA.
Why do people need to be on the phone every waking hour? This bugs me so. Can we vote?
