not feeling well, so i came into work late today. took the 1130 train, which is apparently the one all the english phds ride because they were talking about footnotes and quotations in papers and whatnot.

anyway, two of them were having a conversation on the train behind me and i couldn't help but overhear. i have trouble tuning out "background" noise.

it was amusing, so here you go.

boy: you know in cvs, they have that atm that you just swipe your card thru instead of inserting it?
girl: yeah, yeah.
boy: those are dangerous cuz-
girl: oh really?
boy: well, yeah, i was gonna say those are dangerous cuz, well, for instance, i was in line to use it and there was a guy in front of me. anyway, he used it, took his cash and walked away. i go up to the screen and it still says: can we help you with another transaction today?
boy: yeah, well, my moral dilemna i let the person behind me have some of this guy's money too?
