    Deserved what you got!

    Sitting on the train on the way to work this morning and this lady sits down beside me and tries to start a conversation. Im a little stressed thinking about the bad day I'm gonna be having so I'm listening to music with my earphones on, completely ignoring her. She persists so I politely tell her I'm not in the mood for socialising atm. Says something about me being rude and moves a bit further down and starts talking to another para who unwisely obliges. For some strange reason (I'll never understand because i have bad zealot vibes about this chick) he tells her he was shot by a rival g-banger. She promptly gets all high n mighty and blurts out so even i can hear and I'm about 3 meters away. "You got what you deserved." I lost my shit. All of a sudden an apple comes flying out of nowhere and hits her fair on the back of the head. She got off a few stops later and trips on a schoolbag while leaving the train. She looks up at me trying to get up on the platfor of the stop. I recall saying something to the affect "Got what you deserved". Doubt she got the irony. I was looking forward to eating that apple. Hmmmmph.

    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

        It wouldn't have been so funny if she would have had you hauled off the train at the next stop and charged with battery.

            Oops my bad. I moved back to Australia in July. Hadnt thought to change the location.

            Apple head was completely oblivious to who threw the apple. The people sitting around me laughed their heads off when it happened. I'm not sure, but I think they were too involved in their own little world to know it was me.

                  If this story is true, I don't find it funny. I get the intent of irony, but you were purposely meaning to physically harm/injure the woman, which doesn't compare to what she said nor is justified by it. All she actually said to you was that you were rude.

                  From your description, she sounds like a person with mental health issues. Crazy or not, she might've said some crazy shit, but you acted like a crazy pos by physically attacking her.

                    Quite some time ago while eating lunch in a coffee shop, an old miserable fkr decided that he had a few words for me. Just for his pleasure, no reason, because he thought he had the right to. I had no idea who he was, never met him before and I wasn't from that town so no way he could've known me. So I'm sitting at the table about to eat and like a real coward he comes from behind and grumbles into the side of my head. It was mostly just bitchy words hardly audible but I was picking up was he was throwing down. I waited until he was done before turning to look at him because I didn't want a face full of sardine and mothball breath stench wafting inside my air passages. As he walked to the table where all the old timers were sitting, his old timer friends looked horrified that he'd just pulled that shit. I gave them a smirk like, "don't worry about it."

                    A few minutes later he waddles out to his truck and everyone watches my reaction, to see if I had any reaction at all. I didn't but I still hadn't brushed off his bs stunt yet. I notice him start walking back with a handcrafted birdhouse in his hands to show his friends his handy work. As he walks back, I see that he somewhat carelessly drags his feet as he walks and I noticed earlier entering the coffee shop that there was a one inch lip on the entrance footplate. Very much a tripping hazard. So as he approaches the door, I measure the distance of his foot lifting from the ground. I notice that there isn't enough distance to clear that lip. Now, had that miserable fk never have opened his miserable mouth and aimed it in my direction, I would've made sure he made it past that lip all fine and dandy. But since he decided to be a pos to me, the 'couldn't give a fk' part of me decided to sit this one out. So with a smile in my eyes but not on my face, I looked directly at my uncle of which was sitting directly across the table from me, and as he wondered why I was staring at him with that shit eating grin in my stare, that miserable fkr opened that door, snagged his foot on that lip and came a-crashing down, all six feet of him, with his ugly ass bird house crashing down with him breaking into a dozen pieces. I didn't flinch a muscle in reaction as others jumped to his aid.

                    My uncle realized I knew it was going to happen and that I sat there and let it happen. As my uncle sat there letting it register of what an evil prick I could be, I could see that he wasn't sure if he should be disappointed in me or glad that he had a nephew, usually so nice and respectful, that it shocked him when he wasn't. I let him figure it out for himself as others helped the old man up, find all the pieces to his now jigsaw puzzle of a birdhouse and take him to his table.

                    So after all that, as we finished up lunch, paid the bill, made our way out, I could feel that the entire fairly packed coffee shop had realized the old man that felt like being a pos to me, had fallen nearly at my feet and that I didn't give af in the least. And as I walked towards the door I noticed his old timer friends smirking at me. Because they knew what I did or lack there of. And because they knew what he had done to provoke me to do nothing at all. My last couple of steps out the door was occupied by having a glance at that miserable grump looking down at his birdhouse puzzle while avoiding all eye contact with me. I think both he and myself learned lessons that day. But I got a better story to tell out of it.

                      An eye for an eye. Hmm.

                      Is this what humanity has come to...Where is compassion, understanding. Stuff happens in life...pick your battles...but was this one???

                      This old man really did nothing to you, except some trash talk (probably because of dementia or some other condition of age), but you could sit blithely by while he could have been badly hurt. Yah! That is quite a better story to tell. Sorry, I just don't get it.

                      All the best,
                      GJ

                        Are you kidding??

                        There are real people out there that literally hate the disabled for whatever reason. Great story.

                          I wouldn't expect you to 'get' much, gjnl. You, the both of you, have never shown us anything that we could describe as intelligent thought, behavior, input or discussion. When your single most important interest is to indulge in your own self-righteous displays, of which you are both the pinnacle example of, your shared mind becomes so narrowed and focused on your impulse to inject your intolerant opinions at every opportunity, your ability to perceive anything other than your self-importance greatly diminishes your capacity to comprehend what doesn't involve you. You should be sorry.

                          All the best,

                            A non action is different than throwing something at someone. I would have done exactly the same thing and done nothing, but later felt a little guilty. I once had a middle school, it was junior high then, who would ridicule the heck out of me in front of the class on a regular basis. I swear if he had stepped out in front of a speeding truck I would not have said a word.
                            I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

                              I guess I don't get it. You "NorthQuad" did nothing good or bad! Because you may or may not have been able to prevent a fall means nothing. I would guess the rest of the folks there were simply thinking you might say something and justifiably so. Because of this guy's remarks to you, somehow he got his just "deserts" at least that is my opinion.

                              A While back while sitting in a breakfast area at an Airport motel several very well dressed businessmen were also eating breakfast there. One of these dudes made a remark some of the human race should know to just die off he was looking directly at me while making his remark. Yes ! I was sitting in my power chair, And YES, I am now an older looking guy, that's because I am getting older 77 now perhaps 75 then. I did not make any sort of contact with him, or get in his way. I am not generally paranoid about such remarks. This one just got under my craw. There are a lot of those "mean" people out there. And without any help these mean folks often do get into difficulties "like falling on their face" You were just fortunate enough to be witness to that moment of self made difficulty, you didn't make it happen, or not happen.
