YDI for complaining about losing the money when it was your choice to keep it or give it away.
44, exactly! As a neurobiology student, I read clinical cases all the time where people are socially awkward and genuinely afraid of people in social settings and it's honestly really sad. They tend to be bullied throughout their life (school, career) and people often make jokes on their expense and they're so lonely, they start regarding both negative or positive attention as sign of friendship. Not saying that OP has that but what if he does? We should all be pretty thankful that we turned out as "normal" as we did. I'm sorry, OP. fortunately, we live in a world where you can seek medical help and therapy (or just karate classes!) if you have any kind of anxiety or if you're afraid in public.
And here was my dumbass actually working for money when I could've been getting it this easily the whole time. Kudos to that guy for showing me the way.
YDI for not having a backbone! I would of told him to shut it because it was my money. Who cares about the looks that other people are giving you. It was rightfully your money.
I wouldn't be surprised if the glares from other people weren't even glares. I mean, if some random idiot on a train yelled at another person that the money in the person's pocket was "really their's", I'd probably think the person who was yelling was just being crazy or an asshole. I doubt this is the weirdest or most glare-worthy thing that people have seen on the subway.
