Letter of the day: Can’t people stop yakking on phones?

Have your say

Why do we have to listen to people’s phone conversations when we take a bus ride?

I have a phone and only use it when I am in my own home, never on a bus.

Last Friday we had a lovely day out in Gosport, but on our return trip to Fareham bus station it all changed.

Five people were using their mobiles talking loud enough for everyone to hear them.

There was a middle-aged woman sitting behind us talking to her daughter about her dying relation, going all into detail.

Definitely a private conversation.

The bus trip was horrible.

What was supposed to have been a good day out was utterly spoilt.

We both felt really depressed when we got home.
