Inconsiderate incident

It never ceases to amaze me how inconsiderate some people can be. For instance, a black lady gets on the train with her many shopping bags and although there are seats available, she decides to stand next to me with her shopping bags hitting against me. She knows the bags are hitting me because one of the shopping bag is in the hand that is holding the pole that is beside me. The shopping bag is ginormous, and it is hanging off her wrist and hitting me.

Either put it on the floor or hold it in your other hand. When I’m carrying lots of bags, I make sure it’s not hitting people. Yes, sometimes it can’t be avoided and you say, “sorry” and you try to arrange your bags so it’s not hitting other people.

I’m writing this while she stands over me so it wouldn’t surprise me if she reads it. I am correct. She mutters, “I’m sorry, I didn’t know my bags were hitting you.” Mind you, she did not make her statement to me. Instead, her tone was more a response to me having written the above, and she wanted me to know that she was reading what I was writing. She then moves to stand next to the pole in front of me and puts the ginormous bag on the floor.

She later tries to get my attention as I am exiting the train but instead, stops the person I was with and tells him the person he is with (me) was rude. That person did not know what she was talking about until I explained what happened.

It’s funny that she thought I was rude for writing about how oblivious she was about her bags hitting against me. If anybody was rude, it was her – as described above and for reading that I was writing about the inconsiderate incident.
