“Cellphone Crashing”: Getting Even With Loud Talkers

By: Amanda Crum - December 16, 2013

It’s happened to most of us at one time or another; standing in line at the grocery store, or waiting at the doctor’s office, perhaps. You’re minding your own business, waiting to get whatever it is over with so you can get home and watch Breaking Bad on Netflix, when you hear the obnoxiously loud voice of the person behind you. No, they aren’t talking to you. They’re telling Ashley about the amazing night they had at the club, and why that bitch Veronica better watch her back. Sometimes, it’s comical, but mostly it’s just irritating. So one guy found a solution.

Greg Benson of MediocreFilms calls it “cellphone crashing”, and he does what many of us only think of doing: takes out his own phone, sits next to the loud talker, and begins having a similar conversation. His wife has filmed some of the results, and it’s pretty comical. Take a look.

And speaking of “Breaking Bad”, this is how Walt deals with loud talkers.
