The Asian Shouting Girl

Today’s #peopleofpublictransport is the Asian Shouting Girl. She is a subtype of the Phone Person.
The Asian Shouting Girl has her phone welded to the side of her face, and she shouts a constant stream of her native language into the phone. She seems not to need to breathe, such is the uninterrupted flow of sound. She also does not appear to be listening, unless she and her co-conversationalist have mastered the obscure art of listening while making as much noise as possible.
Clearly she is under the impression that the only thing you should be quiet for is to preserve the confidentiality of your discussion. However, the fact remains that just because we don’t understand a word doesn’t mean we can’t hear every last syllable in full and annoying precision.
