Woman Yakked 16 Hours on "Quiet Car?"

Meet Lakeysha Beard, who, according to media reports, sat on the quiet car of an Amtrak train in Oregon recently.

Lakeysha Beard, the alleged Amtrak
yakker extraordinaire
The quiet car is meant for people who don't want to listen to cell phone calls. So none are allowed. According to television station KOMO, Lakeysha decided the quiet car was the perfect place to hold a loud, 16-hour cell phone conversation.

Sixteen hours! Who can possibly talk that long? Well, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt.  did in December  during a filibuster, but that's OK. He was on the Senate floor, which is a far, far, louder cry than an Amtrak quiet car.

I also want Lakeysha's cell phone. The battery lasted 16 hours? Wow! It's a super phone.

Anyway, she supposedly got aggressive on the train when fellow passengers told her the shut the &*@$ up. Lakeysha complained that she felt "disrespected" by passengers' complaints and the fact that she got arrested.

All this will be sorted out in court, and we're really yet to hear her side of the story.

But if Lakeysha's tale is true, stay away from her. She'll talk your ear off, that's for sure.
