Dealing with TTC donkeys

My manager, who rides the TTC to work on the Yonge line, has learned that the best way to deal with commuting donkeys when confronted is to not engage.

Yesterday, she boarded a subway car and tried to navigate to the centre of the car, past all the door donkeys, when one lady refused to budge. Three times my manager said, "Excuse me", before moving the woman's bag and sliding past her. The woman twirled around and yelled at my manager, "Did you just try to steal my bag?"

My manager shot back that she had asked her to move so she took matters in her own hands. "Hey," said the woman, "You're not the only one who's trying to get to work, you know." To which my manager replied, "And private parts are private," before shoving her earbuds into her ears.

DIAL UP THE CRAZY. Wins every time.

Did you write this on your phablet? Curious minds want to know.

And good for your manager... nicely done.

No, I got it this afternoon.
This is going to take some practice.

My go-to phrase, when confronted with bottomless stupidity or teh crazy, is to shout as loud as possible "HOW DARE YOU! I'M a MARRIED MAN!"
