Yesterday afternoon Jim and I took the train home with a very loud, upset, and SHITFACED woman. She spent a majority of the train ride on her cell phone screaming at various people - to the amusement of a majority of her fellow passengers.
Jim and I were in hysterics because she was SO 'out there' - yelling and swearing her face off with absolutely no regard for anyone else on the train. Much like most of the rude, self-centered cell phone gabbers out there, she was behaving as if she were sitting in her living room.
It all started out very funny, but by the end of the ride I was feeling a little bit sorry for her. From what I could tell: she's currently living with her boyfriend and for whatever reason she decided yesterday that she had had enough and was moving out. At one point, she called her boyfriend's sister and was explaining the situation to her and in the middle of the story she started to cry. It seems that she and the sister are quite close and she's afraid that the breakup is going to ruin their friendship. She was also telling the sister that she on her way home to get some stuff and was planning on staying at the local Motel 6 (which I KNOW is a dump) for a couple of weeks. That in itself is just sad.
I know this isn't the first time that this has happened, because we've heard her similar rants on the train before...but that makes it even more pathetic. She's clearly got issues and should probably be getting some 'professional help' - that doesn't involve a trip to the packie (that's what we Massachusetts folk call a liquor store) every morning.
Oh well...if I run into her again, I'll give you an update. :-)
In happier news, tomorrow is the Boston Gay Pride Parade!!!!
YAY! I love parades, and even if the parade is made up mostly of politicians and church groups, it's always fun to see the gays out in full force.
I'm going to bring the camera this year and take some fun pictures, come hell or high water.
Other than going to the parade and maybe the block party afterwards, we really don't have any big plans this weekend.
Well, that's not entirely true. On Sunday night, we're going to Charter Night for the local Lions Club. Jim's dad is being installed (inducted?) as The King Lion.
No - I'm not kidding.
In all seriousness, The Lions Club is a really great organization and they do a ton of great stuff for people in need all without shoving religion down your throat, which is a HUGE plus in my book. I'll be sure to report back about that as well.
Have a GREAT weekend and HAPPY PRIDE!!!!
