Found a new kind of subway asshole! This fartknocker in blue got on and leaned his full body against a pole that a bunch of people were holding. Everyone else has since removed their hands, but I’m going anywhere because I don’t negotiate with terrorists.
Oh i know this asshole well.
Last week, ran into one. I tapped him on the shoulder and said “hey man, you probably shouldn’t lean on the pole.” And he looked at me a little surprised and a little bit like a hardass. And said, “Ok, sorry. I didn’t know I was doing anything wrong.” But he said it in a way that was kind of sarcastic? And I said “Oh don’t worry about it, man,” pretending to miss the sarcasm entirely, which I think just made him more embarrassed and mad. Not satisfied with the results of our encounter, he said to me 10 seconds later, “Is this alright now? Am I doing it right?” and I said, “Yeah, man, that’s much better.”
the best way to educate jerks is to just pretend that they didn’t know any better, because usually they don’t.
