Crazy Mary dislikes sandals
Here's another reader contribution to wonderful world of Tattler Tales. Thanks, Jules!
This happened 3 years ago. It was rush hour in the Loop and I got on a Brown Line at State & Lake.
It was the middle of summer and a particularly hot and sticky day so, naturally, I was wearing sandals. No sooner did I step into the car when Crazy Mary got in my face and yelled "Whore! Wearing socks without sandals! You're a whore!" I ignored her and found the last 12 inches of unoccupied floor space a few feet away from her.
The next thing I hear is a beeping sound and then the voice of the train operator through the speaker next to the call button: "Can I help you?" Without missing a beat, Crazy Mary declares, in her raspy and aged voice, "There's a man and woman f*#*ing on the train!"
Snickers and titters ran through the crowd until the conductor said: "Ummmm...........thank you???" At that point people busted out laughing and, luckily, Crazy Mary got off of the train at the Merchandise Mart.
