【明報專訊】美國一名女子乘搭夜班火車時，狂煲電話粥15小時，被其他乘客投訴，最終被警方拘捕。 法新社報道，該名39歲女子畢爾德乘搭美國鐵路公司（Amtrak），由洛杉磯往華盛頓，她在途中不斷講電話，打擾其他乘客。警方說，畢爾德在旅途中被要求安靜時，她出現侵略性反應，且與人爆發「口角風波」。火車職員最終報警，警員到場，拘捕該名女子。畢爾德告訴波特蘭地方電視台「KATU News」，這宗事件讓她感到「不受尊重」。《WASHINGTON (AFP)》A young woman who insisted on noisily chatting on her cell phone throughout a marathon 15-hour train ride was forcibly removed by police following numerous passenger complaints.The woman was traveling on Amtrak's Coast Starlight, which runs between Los Angeles and Seattle, Washington, and was speaking loudly enough to annoy surrounding passengers, said Amtrak spokesman Vernay Graham."I guess she got into some sort of confrontation with others passengers that were sitting around her," said Graham, adding that the train had almost reached its destination when the conductor decided to call local police after the train pulled into the station at Salem, Oregon."We consider them unruly passengers when we've asked them to stop doing some kind of behavior and they continue on. Then it's up to the discretion of the service crew, in this case the conductor, to decide that they would be removed," said Graham.
新鮮人:>> ... 原來無禮貎唔係香港人獨有There are inconsiderate ppl everywhere, it is just a matter of severity and proportionality.>> ... 是安慰還是苦笑,我們天天活在可笑的世界It is unhealthy to become cynical and bitter abt the world, but quite all right to laugh at situations that hopefully could be improved. Hope is what keep us going :)
SBB:Thank you for the info. I heard abt the news too.>> ... 這宗事件讓她感到「不受尊重」。Maybe someone should have told her that in her situation, respect is to be earned, not demanded.
