I’m Too Educated To Have Manners

by admin on June 21, 2011

A woman traveling on New York’s Metro North train line was recorded by a fellow passenger telling train employees that she is too “well-educated” to be told to quiet down and not use profanity in her cell-phone conversation.

“Do you know what schools I’ve been to? How well-educated I am?” she asks the train employee, who is seen explaining to another employee that she asked the passenger to stop using the “F-bomb.”

“I’m sorry do you think I’m a little hoodlum?” she asks, then demands her money back and dares the conductor to stop the train.    Read the rest of the article here.

Chocobo, I like the way you think!

I wonder what she was trying to get across? What does education have to do with excusing rudeness?

I believe it was something along the lines of ‘I am a wealthy and privileged person, and you are a rail worker, which automatically makes you inferior to me and gives you no right to tell me what I can and cannot do!’

Alas she was wrong on all counts and made herself look entirely ridiculous in the process…

Hmm, I wonder how long before she’s identified by name and publicly outed?

She’s gone international. She was “named and shamed” by someone in the Daily Mail website. Her family must be so proud.

Being a hoodlum (or other synonym for rude person) has nothing to do with money, education, religion or race. It has everything to do with how one chooses to act.

By that standard, this woman is acting very much like a “hoodlum.”
