today i saw the craziest thing on the subway. a full on brawl. 9am. 2 train going from 72nd downtown. me and andrea are sitting, riding down to work and these two people start arguing. a larger man and a small lady (although i guess lady wouldn't be the right word when you read what's comes next). all of a sudden they start pushing each other.

then all hell breaks loose. they stand up (mind you it's a full, moving train) and the girl tries to push the guy. HE PUSHES HER BACK! what on earth kind of man pushes a girl who is about half his size?!? she flies back, hits the subway pole and falls to the ground. all the while, her coffee is flying all over the place, people are trying to break it up, and me and Andrea are watching in disbelief. the girl picks herself off the floor and goes back at him for more!
luckily, the train pulled into the 34th street station and a couple guys pulled the girl off the train (much to her dismay) and away from the man to end the fight. then the man sits back down and continues to read his coffee sodden paper like nothing happened. SERIOULSY? what on earth could two perfect strangers be fighting about at 9am. and seriously man? you think it's ok to physically assault a girl who obviously is no threat to you? some people are just crazy.
and that's how i started my friday morning. luckily the rest of the day was a little quieter...
