A hair-raising moment

It's the weekend, when I give over this space to the Best Reader Tattler Tales. This one comes to us courtesy of Christine. (Thanks for sharing, Christine. And be sure to click here to add your own story.)

Glasses "I've seen this woman twice now, as I get on the Red Line at Jarvis at about 8 a.m.

"A slight, middle aged woman who is obviously suffering from some level of mental illness sits in the handicapped seats, peering through her glasses at every woman who boards.

"When she sees a young woman with long hair she fancies, she gets up and starts petting their hair, telling them, "You're sooooooo pretty! Sooooo pretty."

"Even more worthy of note than the woman's inability to control her compulsion to touch these young women is their reaction at being petted -- it's obvious the woman means no harm, and the young women always seem to tolerate it with a mixture of sympathy, tolerance and kindness."


Great story. Loved it.

Wow I saw that lady on the Red Line between Addison and Belmont. In that short time she did this to two women.

I once witnessed a pretty scary moment. But first lemme say that i myself have spent some good times in the hobo corner...it's a good place ot have a drink or whatever.

so anyway, i was on the orange line going to midway. the car i was on wasn't that full. but the key players in this story are: a young white girl, sitting alone; a young scary looking mexican kid ..maybe 20 - 23 yrs old sitting directly behind her; a middle aged black guy (not a professional, but not a bum or anything); and a few randoms.

so we're riding, and all of the sudden i hear someone (it turned out to be the mexican kid) yell "BOOM!!!". and you see people on the train kind of looking around like what the hell was that? it turned out that this mexican kid had pointed his finger at the back of the girl's head like it was a gun and pretended to pull hte trigger. so he gets up (this is around the randolph orange line stop) and he walks ot the black guy and stands right in front of him and you can tell the mexican guy is totally wasted. either tripping or drunk or i don't know..but he was in another world. and he gets in teh blacks guy's face..except the black guy was sitting down...and he starts saying 'you hungry mang? you hungry???'

so now people are getting nervous. i happened to have my wallet out b/c i was seeing if my license was expired b/c i was on the way to the airport and sometimes they don't let you use expired licenses as an ID. so the black guy gets up and says 'yeah i'm hungry...hungry for a piece of that ass!'. he wasn't backing down. the mexican kid kind of backs away and is standing directly in front of me...and here i had my wallet out! so i nonchalantly put it away. meanwhile the mexican and black guy are exchanging words and the black guy stands up...no fear at all..he was ready.

so there was this mini-showdown...very stressful moment b/c you never know who has a gun these days. the mexican kid backs down and leaves the train, but before the train leaves he comes up and bangs really hard on the glass and motions toward the black guy to get his attention. when the black guy looks at him, the mexican makes a motion ..moving his thumb from one side of the neck to the other...very slowly...the way you slit a throat. and that was that.

as the train pulled away, the black guy kind of spoke to himself and the rest of us out loud saying 'did you see that? this guy pretending to shoot this girl here..acting all crazy...i shoulda wooped his ass!' (that's how i came to know what that 'BOOM!' was..the black guy witnessed what happened)...and then he got off at the roosevelt stop i think.

it was a very crazy moment. and i was thinking...man, don't let me die on the way to vacation! not now!

one time i was riding the red line and there were two young black males w/a black female maybe 30/35 yrs old. she was skinny and had tattooed eyebrows. she was gross looking though. so anyway, she comes and sits next to me. i think to fuck w/me. so she starts asking if i have a big dick. i was kind of kidding around and answered 'huge!'. actually, before she was asking me, she was saying 'i bet you have a big dick' and that's when she came and sat next to me (before she was sitting across from me..we were in teh seats right next to the door).

so then she starts asking if i eat pu$$y and she's sticking out her tongue like a snake...disgusting. and then she asked if i like to perform anal sex and would i do her. and she was so in my face..so close to me w/her bugged out eyes. and i think someone on the train farted or something b/c it just smelled awful and between the disgusting smell and the disgusting girl sitting next to me, i jsut wanted to puke. meanwhile, one of the young black males w/her says to me 'uh oh..she likes you. you might as well just take her home now' and i was like no thanks.

it was so gross.

i've been propositioned a few times by the famous 'north ave hookers'..although never on north ave. one offered me a blowjob. i was looking at her...she had summer teeth..summer here summer there. i don't understand who the hell pays these people for sex.
