In the late 90's I remember sitting in a moderately crowded Odakyu line train in the middle of the afternoon. Many if not all of the seated and standing passengers were directing their annoyed stares at one thirty-something guy chatting rather loudly on his cellphone standing next to the doorway. The train had just stopped and was about to leave the station when just the doors were closing, a guy in his early to mid fifties who had been trying to read his newspaper, quick as a flash moved quickly toward the guy, ripped the phone from his ear and with a baseball-type pitch threw it out the door before prompty returning to his seat to resume reading his newspaper. It was a classic movie-type moment. He even got a round of approving nods from various obasans seated up and down the aisles. The train moved off and the cell-yell guy was beside himself, didn't know what to do. I've never seen anything like it.
