Once I went into a train wearing a badge saying
THE BOOK MEANS I DON'T WANT TO TALK.
Then someone else put on a badge saying
BUT I'M SURE YOU'RE FASCINATING, WHAT BOOK ARE YOU READING?
Then I put on a badge saying
NO REALLY I'D RATHER QUIETLY SIT HERE IN THE CORNER AND NOT BE NOTICED.
Then they put on a badge saying
OH REALLY THAT'S RIDICULOUS I'M JUST TRYING TO BE FRIENDLY AND YOU KNOCK ME BACK!
So I replied with a badge saying
NOW YOU'RE JUST BEING PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE, REALLY, CAN'T YOU JUST LET ME BE?
Then a third person put on a badge saying
STOP ARGUING YOU TWO I CAN'T HEAR THIS BOOK I'M READING!
At this point a fourth person interjected with a badge of their own saying
COUGH. EXCUSE ME. CAN'T SEEM TO SHAKE THIS COLD.
And then the arguing REALLY started.
Ten stops later I got off just in time. The whole train was clinking and rattling with badges and a Goth had just got on and the stud in his nose had just become jammed between several badges on the person opposite’s lapel.
