Sorry for posting so soon again, but I need to ask this for my own sanity.|
This morning I was on the train. It wasn't totally horrible, but it was full, and I get on at the second stop. Over the next few stops, one person got on and had a large bag next to me, and there was people both in front and behind me.
A woman comes in and stands at the pole next to mine. She's about my height. We start to move, and all of a sudden, her hand squirms in under my shoulder. She has decided to hold onto the pole I was squished between. I look over, since it's not normal for this to happen. She doesn't say anything, so I'm like, alright, this is weird, but I can't really move, so whatever. It hurts her more than me, I bet.
So the train starts to move and she goes "EXCUSE ME", so I look over. and she starts moving her hand around more under my shoulder. I say "I'm sorry, I can not move." So she goes on her merry way.
Now, if you've ever been on the T, it jiggles a lot, so I am trying to find my balance, and every once in a while, I'll be pushing on her hand.
She then says to me, really loudly so the whole train looks "IS IT REALLY DIFFICULT FOR YOU TO NOT SQUISH MY HAND?"
I just said "I'm sorry, I've been in this spot the entire time. I can not shrink, nor can I move."
I wish I had said "move your hand up if you're that uncomfortable" since if she had moved it up about two inches, she would have not had to deal with my shoulder being jostled around and hitting her hand.
Was I wrong in this situation? Is this chick just crazy?
