More Thoughts About Public Transport

If I have to reside next to another teenager or hippie who says "like" every third word I will do significant damage to that person. Two girls the other day and one said, "He's like. And I'm like. Like. Like. Like."

No, I don't like it.

And last night there was a girl all dressed in black with fishnet stockings on her legs, a much more appropriate place for them, and black fingernail polish. She was on the phone when I boarded the train and still yabbering away 20 minutes later when I alighted. By this stage she was almost rolling around on the floor laughing so much without any consideration for the other passengers. There were numerous glares in her direction but she obviously didn't care. A little bit of dignity gone astray, perhaps?

I'm surprised by how much people swear whilst on mobile phones whilst in public places. There was a time when this didn't happen. Yes, it was before mobile phones but I mean that people didn't curse in public before. Maybe I'm just getting too f***ing old. Ha.

Dignity, always dignity! I doubt if the girl you mentioned knows the meaning of the word.

I saw the same girl again last night, and yes, she was on the mobile. Thankfully she was in the station and not onboard the train. Certainly in a world of her own.
