I was coming home from work yesterday and was sitting on the inward-facing bench seats over the rear wheels. There was a man sitting opposite me. He was holding up a newspaper and I couldn’t see him.
A few minutes into the ride he pulled his phone out of his pocket and mumbled something about lying. The phone didn’t ring first so I figure it was on vibrate. Then he put the phone away.
A few minutes later as the bus was approaching my stop, he pulled the phone out again and this time he put down the newspaper. He was about 60 and looked tough.
“What? Why you lie to me? Your mother needs money? Your mother needs a job? FUCK YOUR MOTHER!!!”
OMG! I was shocked to hear that! I’m sure my eyes about fell out of my head.
The man then calmly put the phone back in his pocket and started reading the paper again.
I wonder what the lady with the 4-year-old little girl sitting right next to him thought.
