Chris Christie broke the cardinal rule of Amtrak etiquette. 

The Republican New Jersey governor, who is well-known for his blunt personality, was spotted on an Amtrak Acela train to New York following his Sunday show appearance in Washington, D.C., disturbing the holy silence of the quiet car.

The presidential candidate, who has not found much traction in the polls, was apparently very animated in his phone conversation and kept repeating, “this is frickin’ ridiculous” and “seriously?! seriously?!”

According to a fellow rider (and hero) who wrote in to Gawker:

He got on last minute yelling at his two secret service agents I think because of a seat mixup, sat down and immediately started making phone calls on the quiet car. After about 10 minutes the conductor asked him to stop or go to another car. He got up and walked out again yelling at his secret service. He was drinking a McDonald’s strawberry smoothie.

No one is above the quiet car rules, governor. No one.
