A jerk in the subway

I was walking up a flight of stairs at the Times Square subway station behind a woman in a black leather jacket, who looked fairly young from behind. She moved, however, painfully slow. I wrung my hands a bit dramatically behind her, then moved over to the stairway on the other side of the handrail and passed her.
At the top of the stairs, I heard a man behind her bleat,“You need to go to the gym.”
“I have a broken leg,” she replied.
The man huffed and puffed past her. He was built like Humpty Dumpty and wearing a little nylon backpack.
I waited for him to apologize or, at the very least, look a little taken aback.
But instead he said, as he turned toward Sixth Avenue:“Yeah, well you should still go to the gym. Work out your other leg.”
With my jaw dropped, I turned back to the woman, expecting her to really lay into the guy. Instead she just continued to go slowly up the stairs with a pathetic hangdog expression. I turned away and trailed behind the mean man for half a block before I lost him in the Midtown commuter shuffle.

In midtown traffic. It's not that I was walking slow (and btw I'm not fat lol), it's that he was walking fast.

I wouldn't say he was fat either. Maybe "jolly" or "fluffy."

Odd, fat guys usually seem more rushed going down steps..
