A woman travelling on Metro North flipped out after a conductor scolded her for having an allegedly loud and profane conversation.
She told the conductor:
“I was not cursing, excuse me, do you know what schools I’ve been to?
“I’m sorry, do you think I’m a little hoodlum?
“From my mouth? Excuse me? Do you know how well-educated I am?
“Stop the train, stop the train.
“No do not tell me to go to customer service. I am not a crazy person. I am a very well-educated person.”
The woman got more and more upset before storming off. A minute later, there was an announcement asking all passengers not to use profanity on the train, “especially those people who went to Harvard or Yale or are from Westport.”
UPDATE: The indignant woman is Hermon Raju, according to Dealbreaker. She was recently a graduate intern at BNP Paribas, according to her LinkedIn profile. She has an undergrad degree in politics from NYU and a graduate degree in finance and marketing from NYU.
Luckily someone caught the exchange on camera (via Daily Mail):
