i thought the man sitting next to me was looking at me funny, but then he pulled out his cane and i figured he was simply blind and curious as to who had sat down next to him. then he commented on my mittens, and i responded before we both returned to staring straight ahead and i got into my music. he wished me a good day when he left.
on the way out i saw a woman very busily walking up the down escalator, moving just quickly enough to stay in the same place. another woman shouted at her as she passed her, and eventually the first woman realized that she'd picked the wrong side.
