I’ve had to add a third option to my “Overheard Wit & Wisdom” series, because a bit of dialogue I heard the other day fits in neither of those categories, but still deserves passing on.
Participants: A young Latin guy in business casual sitting in the “reserved for seniors and handicapped” seats, and an old white guy wearing a tattered blue-jean jacket, just stepping onto the DC Metro Red Line.
Young guy [standing up]: “Sir, would you like this seat?”
Old dude [staring at the opposite wall]: “I’ll sit down when I’m dead.”
Young guy shrugs and sits back down.
