Con­ver­sa­tion Over­heard on #1 Sub­way Train, as Re­sult of An­nounce­ment “There is An­oth­er Train Di­rect­ly Be­hind This One,” Dur­ing a Crowd­ed Time


Man (to crowd): “Hey! They said there’s an­oth­er train right be­hind this one.”

Woman: “Oh yeah, and I have a bridge to sell you in Brooklyn.”

Man: “I beg your pardon?”

Woman: “I said I have a bridge I can sell you in Brooklyn.”

Man: “I don’t…”

Woman: “No one ever tried to sell you the Brook­lyn Bridge before?”

Man: “No. Since I’m British… we don’t re­al­ly say that.”

Woman: “Oh. Right.”
