On commuter trains, the cell phone usage is very annoying. People
talk loudly. Do cellphones have enough sidetone or too much
anti-sidetone circuitry?

At my local convenience store a customer was loudly yaking away on her
cell phone, including liberal use of profanities, and created a
disturbance. She utterly ignored requests to go outside; as if her
phone conversation was more important than anyone else. A lot of cell
phone talkers have that nasty attitude.

Talking while driving is very distracting. Regularly motorists yaking
pull up to the wrong lane and then block traffic trying to switch
over. They still don't hang up even then.
