Metro-North Conductor Screeched At By 'Well-Educated' Woman
The award for most insufferable person of the week goes (not without a challenge
) to the woman yelling at her Metro-North conductor, who calmly asked the customer to "keep it down and stop using profanity or to take it to the vestibule," according to theYouTube description
. "Do you know what schools I've been to and how well-educated I am?" the woman says in the most obnoxious tone; it's like a parody of a wealthy woman.
"Do you think I'm a little hoodlum?" she demands. "I'm not a crazy person, I'm a very well-educated person," she says again. The conductor stays impossibly calm, even when the irate passenger touches her arm.
The college-educated psycho rightfully became the laughing stock of the train when an announcement later reminded passengers to behave, "especially those people who went to Harvard or Yale or are from Westport." And now, welcome to the internet, asshole.
