Trapped in the "Silent Car"
On the NYC to Boston 3pm Acella, this hedge fund exec thought he was booked in first class so he could smooze his boss and enjoy the open bar. Instead, the worst of all possible fates, his secretary booked "business class" which is the only other option. So he was stuck with the masses. Even worse, the last available seat was in the silent car, sitting backward, opposite me. No talking on your cell phone in the silent car or the conductor comes around and yells (loudly) at you. He couldn't entirely stop himself, though. He called his boss in first class and told him. He called a couple of people and told them, too. He called into a conference call after calling a few more people to tell them he would but wouldn't say anything because he wasn't allowed to talk on his cell phone in the silent car. Here he is, enduring the conference call without being able to speak.
Don't believe the exif info. Shot with my Treo 650 cell phone. Business yesterday closed in on me and there was no chance to shoot my daily with a real camera, so here is a modern equivalent of a Holga shot.
