Sunday/ turn OFF that phone .. grr

It happened again on the flight tonight: the airplane door closes, and phones and electronic devices are to be turned off, or at least switched to airplane mode.   But NO: my seat neighbor blithely continues to text away (the one last week scrolled up and down through Facebook, or Twitter.  Really? You cannot just let it go for an hour or two?).  Finally, as we started to taxi, and passenger 9B was still at it, I could not hold it in anymore.   ‘Shouldn’t your phone be turned off?’, I said.  ‘Yes’ came the reply (no apology or explanation), and finally she turned it off.

We’re at gate N16 at Seattle-Tacoma airport, ready for getting pushed back from the gate. The Alaska Airlines plane at gate N1 is about to get luggage loaded into its belly.
