Why I like New York 33: Subway conversation 2

At the 86th Street station, a woman left her seat and the car.

Woman #1 (to Woman #2): Go ahead, take the seat.

Woman #2: No thank you. I am getting off.

Woman #1: OK. I’m getting off, too. But I am going to sit.

Me: We’re all going to get off at some point. (pause) I mean that’s the idea, right? Sooner or later, we all get off.

Woman #1 and Woman #2 laughed. Then …

Woman #1 (to me): Would you like the seat, sir.

Me: No thanks. I’m fine. I’m not as old as I look.

Woman #2 and Woman #1 both laughed again.

They both got off before I did.

I still did not take the seat.

See you along the Trail.
