This is a typical evening ride on the GO bus

Kudos on the ad, Metrolinx, but how about some GUIDELINES ON THE BUS about mobile etiquette? There are none. It's a bloody free for all some days. I don't know how the drivers concentrate between the yapping, pinging notification sounds and loud music from headsets.

I hope the "What would happen if we all did it?" smoking on the platform is the next ad in this campaign.

If not, QUEUE IT UP.

I'm open to being a model. I can be the person on a stretcher on the platform with an oxygen mask on my face, and a priest leaning over me reading my last rites, because that is exactly what would happen "if we all did it".

I know a driver who pulled over and stopped to ask a girl to turn down her music. I don't know how they do it with passengers talking, listening to loud music, eating (insert smell here) food.

The more inane the conversation, the louder it is.

And can you imagine that they're now considering allowing airline passengers to use their cellphones?! Based on what I see (and hear -- even when I don't want to) on the GO Train, I hope it's a non-starter.

I'm sorry Anon, but the whole bus/train/plane NEEDS to know how much of a you know what Stacey is. And as for Chloe.....don't get me started on Chloe.

The key is to write down credit card numbers when they're being given freely on a cell phone. Don't forget to get the name and the security code too!

I could have had a field day online shopping a few months back!

And ExGOnowTTC, your comment (at 2:38pm) made me spit Pineapple Crush out of my nose!
