Here are some typical conversations you can use to identify these riders.
Hipster Holdout: Hey man, I was just on the bus and I thought I'd check in...yeah - I'm calling you from the bus! I know, I'm almost home but...why not call you from the bus? Oh, hold on, I'm getting another call.
[Note: The Hipster Holdouts are also often guilty of talking on the phone while riding their bike, which is even more terrifying.]
Guy in a Suit: Hey, I'll be there in about 12 minutes, but I was wondering if you could read me all my emails in the mean time. I'm so bored! Hold on, I'm writing this down - wait, I'll put you on speaker so I can take notes.
To these and other offenders, I have one word for you: texting. Texting! It was invented so people could ride the bus in peace. True story.
