Comments: People who don't care about subway rants should probably just move on

The best subway viewing I ever had was once on a crowded 6 train, when two large black women tried to grab the same seat, and one of them sat in the other's lap. They then jumped back up and started yelling, talking about disrespect, and then out came the cries of "Hold me back! Hold me back or I'll break her face!"

This continued for about 5 or 10 minutes until the thinnest, whitest college boy I have ever seen stepped between them, and in a nasal voice said, "Ladies, and I do use that term loosely, this is not the place for such an outburst."

Which was the signal for them both to go after him.

On the Red Line heading through Dorchester one evening, I happened to be opposite a couple of young women. As the train got aboveground, of course, the mobile came out, and one of them started a conversation with (surmise) a fellow at the noisy party the two had just left. The conversation went more or less like this: "We're coming back to the party later, we're just going to go smoke a blunt. I said we're coming back later, we're going to go smoke a blunt! I SAID! we're GOING! to go SMOKE! a BLUNT! TO SMOKE A BLUNT!!! A BLUNT!!!!!!" (at this point she has taken an Altoids tin out of her pocket and is waving it around).
I was just happy to know that they were still called blunts. And, I suppose, that it was still pretty much the opposite of sharp.
