Day 246 - otherwise known as "don't mess with me when I have PMS"

>> Thursday, May 13, 2010

Had an interesting "almost altercation" on the bus.

The set-up - I'm on my way home from work. It's raining, there's traffic, the bus was late, I have killer cramps. A group of teenage girls come on the bus, one of them talking way too loudly and being more than a little obnoxious. She starts telling some story to her friends, liberally dropping f-bombs here and there.

The following is our conversation:

Me - "Hey, watch your mouth!"

Girl - "Excuse me, it's not like I was talking to you or nothing"

Me - "No you weren't, but I'm pretty sure the whole bus, including those little kids over there, can hear every word you're saying. So - why don't you do all of us a favour and lay off the swearing until you're off the bus, okay?"

Girl - "Yeah well whose gonna' make me . . . you?"

Me - "Well, I'm older, wiser and stronger honey, and I'm pretty sure the bus driver here wouldn't have a problem kicking you and your buddies off, so yes, Me. Go ahead and try me. I dare you to . . ."

At that, the girl muttered "whatever" under her breath and her and her friends didn't say a word for the rest of the bus ride.

But I did have an older lady and a young mom say "thank-you" to me on my way out.


So there you go - don't mess with me . . . especially when I'm tired and I have cramps . . .
