Observation One:
She seats beside a stranger. He stands besides her hitting her left  shoulder periodically with his thigh. She looks up at him saying, "have a seat," turning her head slightly back to indicate the seat directly behind her. "Can't, a leg's in the way," he replies. She looks back to see. The young man in the seat behind her makes no effort to shift to accommodate another. He kept up a steady rhythm of tap tap tap tap his fingers flying over the keyboard he neither looks up or acknowledges. He sits scatter corner across two seats, his left leg propped casually. His pose saying, 'I do not really care, I don't want anybody to sit next to me.

Observation Two: 
She stands by the bus stop, positioning herself in front. The bus arrives. She pushes forth without regarding the passengers on board. Pleading from others to wait for the passengers exit falls on deaf ears as she holds her position leaning to the side as if the act of leaning is creating space. The bus driver sat observing. The passengers squeezing past her arguing at her obtuseness. She pushes her way through and sits with a loud sigh.

Observation Three: 
Stooped and clothed in winter hooded jacket pulled tight around his face he boards the first subway elevator going down, destination Eastbound. He gets off heading in front toward the next elevator, destination subway platform. He presses the button as the elevator sounds indicating that someone is coming up. The door opens and he pushes his way in before the 2 women inside could come out. "Can I leave?" says the younger woman. "Yeh yeh," he says without moving. The young woman navigating her way through looks at him. The other women more assertive says, "Wait! Wait! Wait till we get out, this is not slavery days buddy." He stops, moves himself slightly over creating more room for her to exit. Laughing at the situation, she and I made contact. She looks at me then she looks at him as if to ask, 'can you believe that?' Smiling and shaking my head I step in behind him.

    1. hmmmm......people make the world go round i suppose.

  2. Some people are so rude and inconsiderate these days. They don't give a second thought to others, sad, sad, sad. Sometimes I leave home for a short trip around the corner and, I'm soon flabbergasted at the totally unnecessary craziness out there.

    Wishing you a great Sunday, my friend!

    1. Yes unfortunately many have a sense of entitlement. Many times i've been knocked, stepped on. I had a woman roll over my foot with her cart and when i told her about it she cuss me as i rolled over her foot.
