If you are about to call me an elitist, you can refrain. I came from a lower middle class family and I doubt I will ever be in high society--it's just not me.
Upward mobility has always been a dream for the middle and lower classes. Education has traditionally been one way to do it.
Not for one woman riding on the Metro North Train.
High five to the New York Metro North train employee who asked the loud, offensive cell phone user to tone it down. Thumbs down to the cell phone user who informed the train employee that she was "too well educated" to be asked to quiet down and stop using the F-bomb.
Several times, the woman refers to herself as a well-educated woman. She rudely asks if the train employee is aware of how many schools she's been to.There's even a video available here.
Is it more shocking that someone like this can become well-educated, or that being so "well-educated" can have nearly no bearing on someone's behavior?
