When I have to listen to a woman whine about her boyfriend, or some guy bitching about his fantasy football team, I sometimes wish I could just shut off the phones or jam the network.
A guy on a Philadelphia bus did just that, and more than once. And he boasted about it on a network newscast:
“A lot of people are extremely loud, no sense of just privacy or anything. When it becomes a bother, that’s when I screw on the antenna [on a jamming device] and flip the switch,” said Eric.
Unfortunately, what Eric was doing is illegal, a federal offense that could result in jail time and up to a $16,000 fine.
Have you ever jammed cellphones on a bus or train?
And what’s your favorite overheard cell snippet? Mine continues to be:
“I ain’t even had sex, why do my legs hurt so bad?”
