To switch seats because she won't shush

Sat on the train and the woman sat opposite me is having the loudest conversation with her friend. Which I don't mind. Her friend keeps making her laugh. But she's not even real laughing. She's fake laughing. One of those really loud, long obnoxious laughs, one of those cackly high pitched fake ones that makes your ears bleed.

I fear I must either punch her or move seats.

Punch her and then move seats.

I hate people with built in boom boxes who have no consideration for anyone. Seriously they must be really thick to never notice how bloody loud they speak especially in confined spaces.

Could you punch a cake right in front of her? The shock might silence her.

It take the opportunity to perfect your own fake laugh.

Punch her and then move, that may be my solution ;)

That or imitate the "work laugh" that Monica did in friends every time she laughs

Pretend to call (or really call ) a friend and say "wanted you to hear this!" Take the phone away from your ear, then say " did you hear that?" And then punctuate it with "I know!" "Amazing really..."

Or just move. smile

Have a fake conversation on the phone while youre getting up and moving, about really loud inconsiderate people in your carriage with no volume control

I agree with punching a cake.

DH once shouted "Would you PLEASE keep your voice down?!" at a woman in McD's for talking far too loud. blush He was bang out of order, but in his defence she was one of those selfish people who have to bellow the whole time and don't give a stuff about the effect on anyone else. She did quieten down though. blush

If there's space elsewhere, I'd just move ..... without punching anyone grin

My DD is going to be one of these annoying people when older... she doesn't seem to have an indoor voice and I have a constant headache! I apologise in advance to all who endure her noise.... she's only 5 at the moment but can't see it improving.... mini fish wife grin

Euphemia the fact that quietened down meant that she could, just that's she's damn inconsiderate. Well done to your dh actually, these people definitely need to be told.

I was mortified and proud of him at the same time, AuntyMag!
