I’m in a bit of a poopy-doody mood (that’s a medical term), so I’m kinda phoning it in today, but that’s ok…… I can’t be at my best EVERYDAY, now can I?
Anyway, this video started hitting the interwebs last week. Some guy on the Metro North NYC railroad took some cell phone video of this uber-witch who decided it would be no problem to have a 30 minute phone call with her friend while on the train, yelling, cursing, and generally being WAY too fucking loud the entire time.
That is, until one of the conductors came over and asked her politely to please quiet down. THAT’S when our “lady of the hour” decided to get all huffy and to stand up and proudly proclaim “Do you know how educated I am????”
Check out the video from THIS link. Apologies for not being able to directly embed it, but it looks like the chick is suing the railroad so Youtube, at her request, took all copies of the video down.
Anyway, as you can see in the video, the argument escalates until the offending moron is thrown off the train.
I guess the reason why this video strikes a particularly nasty chord with me is because EVERY damn time I have to take the Long Island Railroad into New York City for business, there is some asshat JUST LIKE THIS sitting right next to me, cackling away loudly while the rest of the car is trying to sleep, not caring one fucking bit that she is annoying the SHIT out of everyone around her.
Because she’s better educated than the rest of us, see?
Now that I’m looking at it from HER point of view, it makes perfect sense….
Seriously, there are mornings on that train that I want to reach out and KILL the offending person making all the racket. Kudos to the conductor for keeping her cool….
…. And for keeping a sense of humor about the whole thing. After they booted the bitch off the train, the conductor got onto the loudspeaker and announced that everyone is to speak softly and not use profanity on the train, "especially those people who went to Harvard or Yale or are from Westport."
