This morning a guy started scolding a boy for wearing his backpack on the T and standing too close to him. He couldn't have been more than 10 years old and he looked terrified. Luckily his grandmother and another passenger put this guy in his place. His grandmother said he was just a boy and there was plenty of room on the train if he needed more room. The other woman offered the boy her seat. It was at this point that the guy attempted to explain himself to the woman who offered up her seat. She was not having it and told him he was being rude to a kid. The guy continued trying to defend himself but the woman just ignored him. I saw the kid before this happened and he was just standing there. If he was touching the guy with his backpack he wasn't doing it on purpose. There was room on the train to move so this guy could have moved rather than humiliate a kid on the train.

Our landlord came over today to check on our hot water. We've been taking military showers since the water has barely been lukewarm. It should be fixed soon. I miss my hot showers and not attempting to shave my legs in under 30 seconds.

There's a Nor'easter hitting us tonight. The wind has been a real treat today. My umbrella blew inside out a couple of times until I just gave up and closed the umbrella. You win Nor'easter. I hope you enjoyed blasting me in the face with your wind and rain.


  1. Guy was a dick, glad he got put down.

    I need my long hot showers, hope they fix your soon.

  2. What joeh said... about the guy on the T. I probably wouldn't have been able to keep my mouth shut, even though it sounds like Grandma and the other woman handled it.

    1. I was close to saying something but then my stop came and the other women had it handled.

  3. Poor kid, sounds like that guy got out of bed the wrong side that morning.
