As regular B&T readers would know, we love an article that’s not always directly related to adland.

And when a new study landed in our laps showing how much people hated their fellow commuters using mobile phones on public transport, we thought we’d twist it into some sort of mobile/marketing feature while all the while agreeing with it.

Mobile phone “loud talkers” particularly pissed off older commuters, with those aged over 55 voting it the most irritating trait on their local train or bus.

Meanwhile, “manspreading” was voted by 22 per cent of people as the most irritating trait of the public on public transport, while 12 per cent said loud music emanating from a mobile device infuriated them the most.
