Today, I was on a train. An elderly woman and her daughter got on, looking for a seat. The daughter suggested the one next to mine. The elderly woman looked at me and said something in Russian. I speak some Russian. She said she didn't want to "sit by the hooker." FML

Reminds me of that car commercial where the couple are discussing it in Japanese, and when they make up their mind the salesman says "very good." in Japanese.

Girl logic. *scantily dressed teen girl*
"My eyes are up here! Not my boobs!"
Later talking to her girl friends...
"He was totally checking me out. Omg, I must be hot."

We don't need to see what guage of clit hood peircing today's young women prefer through their clothing. The old lady may be judgemental, but she obviously remembers what a tramp used to dress like.

Purplegal - I love the assumption that the old lady was crazy or judgmental. Based on how girls dress these days, I find it MUCH more likely that OP was dressed like a hooker than that the lady was senile.

Senility is NOT as prevalent as people here like to think. Most "elderly" people have all their marbles - they just aren't afraid to voice their opinions. Like me. I mean about the opinions, not about being elderly...dammit you know what I mean!

Doc seems to be making a lot of assumptions in his posts lately.

The girl could've been wearing an above the knee skirt, heels, and a shirt with a little cleavage. She could've had a lot of makeup on. The elderly tend to be pretty conservative (not to generalize, obviously, but we know times have changed). But telling OP to "leave something to the imagination" implies that she was, say, out in her underwear or something - which, while not unheard of, is impossible to tell just from the FML.

Edit - Looks like he's getting the wrath of Alan. Too bad my post will disappear now; I rather liked inserting that point of view :(


I went to my bank and the money was still miraculously there, so then I checked the stock market and it hadn't crashed. Still panicking, I turned on the news expecting to hear of a preemptive strike by Articadia, the secret country in Antarctica, on the rest of the continents.

My reaction to the above moderation. Though I agree DB can be very harsh sometimes, which might reflect his frustrations with particular stupid patients. Maybe the fact that he seems to generalize and assume things more correlates to having a bad day. I see plenty of upbeat and intelligent comments by him as well as the very sporadic generalizing and angry ones.

It is incredible that comments from inteligent and educated persons with plain old commom sense get moderated while leaving untouched comments with insults and foul words. Apparently, someone is "lowering the bar" around here.
