Language Barriers
On the 28 headed toward Geary, I overheard an interesting conversation between middle school girls:

Girl 1: *says something in Spanish*

Girl 2: "OMG I didn't know you spoke Chinese!"

Girl 1: "I don't speak Chinese. You are stupid."

Girl 2: "What did you say?"

Girl 1: "I said 'Shut the f*@* up'."

Girl 2: "But that was in not English, right? It was another language?"

Ahh, the future leaders of this country.

You better not pout, you better not cry....
A woman in front of me waving some kind of literature in her hand abruptly says to a man in a wheelchair crossing in front of us, "We burn the handicapped, too! You better be good!  That's right, you better be good!  We'll burn the handicapped, too!"

Current Mood: amused and yet befuddled

A young man is smoking on BART, apparently in a daze. After being admonished by the train operator, he gets off at the next station and sits down on a bench on the platform (also a no-smoking area).

After the guy gets off, one of the other passengers says,

"Man, you see the damndest crackheads in this city. I should make a movie, 'Incredible Crackheads.'"

Powell Street Station Announcement
Around 6:15 pm on Monday.

"Did anyone at Powell Street Station leave their lettuce on the gate? Did anyone at Powell Street Station leave their lettuce on the gate? Someone left their lettuce . . . Or maybe it was spinach on the gate. Someone's missing their produce. Come and get it."

Richmond-Milbrae Bart approx 1:30 am

Some guy, ranting to his poor friend for a good 30 minutes while we waited for the last train to fill.

"But I mean, you can't like date yourself,  or else I totally would!"

"Okay, do you have any drugs? Because I'm so fucking bored right now I would consider doing coke for the first time just to keep things interesting"

"So I was reading cosmopolitan online..." (followed by an anecdote about his ex-girlfriend.)

this morning in the post office a small angry chinese woman was yelling at the teller because the teller wouldnt accept her letter with chinese stamps on it.

angry woman:  "...well... arent you... interested in seeing postage from other countries?!?!?!!"
teller:  "im sorry mam.  it doesnt work like that here. youll have  to buy some stamps."
angry woman:  "you're rude!!!"
teller:  "mam, i am not rude.  i have a lot of customers that work with me all the time and they think im pleasant."
angry woman:  "they dont know you, youre just a clerk!!"
other (now angry) woman in line:  "shes very nice!!!  i come in here all the time and shes always very nice to me!"
another (also now angry) woman in line:  "yeah!  shes nice!"
angry woman glares at the women in line, and then buys stamps and throws them at the teller leaving her change on the counter and stalking out the door.
teller:  "mam would you like to put the stamps on your letter?"
angry woman:  "thats YOUR job!"
