I was riding the F up Market today, and there was was a loud drunk sitting in the back occasionally harassing other passengers. People dealt with him in various ways, but my favorite was the following. A guy boards the vehicle, presumably a guy that the loud drunk kind of knows. The loud drunk beckons his acquaintance:
HEY, COME SIT BACK HERE. COME SIT BACK HERE!
The acquaintance regards the loud drunk for a second and then shouts back:
I told you, I DON’T SELL CIGARETTES on THE BUS.
JUST COME BACK HERE.
Other guy, fed up already:
KILL this CONVERSATION. Don’t. Say. SHIT ELSE.
Nobody said shit else (until several stops later when the loud drunk started calling the driver a bitch because she wouldn’t run a red light or something).
