Today on the way to work after reading the paper and transferring to the D downtown, I started to speak to myself..internally. Outwardly talking to myself in a public space would just be wrong.
I was telling myself that ‘today is going to be a good day’ - ‘do not allow yourself to get stressed at work’
Just as I finished the sentence this construction worker entered the subway car that I was in and was standing in the door way.
I remained calm, thinking..well, the conductor hasn’t attempted to close the doors. We sat on the platform for awhile and the gentleman began yelling ‘Rocco!’ ‘Rocco! They’re closing the doors, hurry!’
The train began to grumble.
Well, I said to him ‘get the fuck off the train’ and then physically pushed him off the train.
Well, that whole part of not getting stressed lasted for about 2minutes. Will try harder tomorrow.
