  •  i wouldn't have had to get away from this lady- (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    i used to take the T when i lived in the boston area, and i used to ride the harlem line into ny regularly before i moved to central CT. now i just do it occasionally. i rarely ride the subway alone- usually just w/ my son.

    anyway, when people would be annoying or awful, it wasn't anything like a little old lady singing. i'd move to get away from drunk people or loud groups of people. people on cell phones used to bug me but i could sit it out.

    i've had to get away from men who thought they were flirting but were just being awful and wouldn't stop. never had to move away from a little old lady.

    i remember about 17 years ago a guy on the train who was a little off. he was loudly telling us all who we were- he made a family out of everyone. you're my mom! you're my uncle! you're my grandpa! noone came to throw him off the train- he was about a million times more annoying than a little old lady singing to herself.  

    honestly, i don't even know if what that lady was doing would have been on my radar as a problem that must be handled.

    i bet that officer was rejected by law enforcement but was able to get a job w/ 50 state security. it would be interesting to see if he ever worked as a bouncer anywhere- he might have been rough on women there too.

    i so hope there's a trial.
