"Dear Diary:
It was a busy Monday morning, that kind of day where you’re half-awake and half-asleep, and you feel kind of numb, and every movement feels tingly and annoying, and you’re lucky that you’re able to push your way into the No. 1 train car.
I yawned. I wasn’t fully awake, as an early school schedule does not allow for dawdling and snooze buttons. I noticed steam beginning to form on the window in a circle. The air smelled of coffee and sweat. Suddenly, a woman let out a small shriek, but most in the car were too busy fumbling with their iPhones to notice.
“My dress, my dress, my dress, my dress!” she repeated, grabbing on to the ends of her expensive-looking, body-hugging white dress. A thick, brownish liquid formed an egg-shaped stain, dripping off the end of the cloth. A pool formed there, the liquid encompassing her white high-heeled shoes, staining them likewise. Next to her stood a tall man, unmoving man, holding a tilted cup, empty but still dripping with the last of his beverage.
Then, the woman turned into a tornado of fury and brown stain.
“WHY THE [expletive deleted] WEREN’T YOU CAREFUL WITH YOUR [expletive deleted] COFFEE? THIS IS A [expletive deleted] TRAIN! YOU KNOW TO HOLD IT BETTER THAN THAT! I HAVE A [expletive deleted] INTERVIEW, YOU [expletive deleted] KNOW!” she wails.
As the brakes started to squeal and the train entered 79th Street, the tall man smugly motioned to get off the train.
“It’s tea, not coffee, you know.'"
Lol, I feel so bad for that poor girl, but accidents do happen...but why was the guy drinking hot tea on a train?

Why was he drinking tea on the train? Stupidest question ever.

This is how it works in the civilised world:

The trains here serve tea and coffee on the morning commute and beer and wine on the evening commute. Because we're not barbarians.

That woman shouldn't have been wearing a [expletive deleted] white dress and white high heels to a [expletive deleted] interview.

You don't get tea on the subway! That is the stupidest thing I've ever heard. You don't drink tea on a morning rush hour train, there's too many people, and you're almost 100%
Iikely to spill it on someone.

Yea...I agree, black would've been my color choice, but still, he spilled hot tea on her! White high heels? Never seen a pair in my life...weird.

Apparently you've never been on a train in England. Where, because we're civilsed here, manage to purchase our hot morning bevies on the train and consume them without being a totally retarded disaster.

BTW it wasn't a commuter train, it was a packed morning rush subway. Subways here in New York have little seating. You obviously are talking about a commuter train, because on rapid transit, there are no "bevies" to be served.

I wonder what happened to the lady. Maybe she missed her interview, made it but didn't get the job, got the job, went home and cried on her bed... I just wish I knew what happened.

Maybe the man got fined...the MTA recently announced it fines people who drink/eat on rush hour trains.

This reader enjoyed your anecdote; but like Ami said,
you should remember the details of your telling.
Keep up the good work. I'm sure it is a labor of love.
