On the Way to Work or The Crazy Old Man Two Step
Guy 1 walks over to guy 2 on the train today. Guy 1 leans over guy 2 and coughs onto guy 2, then immediately turns and walks the length of the train. Very odd, gross. Guy 2, looking confused, continues reading and being a normal person on a train. Meanwhile, guy 1 has just turned back toward guy 2 and is walking with purpose. Guy 1 again gets to guy 2 and coughs, loudly, then walks off again. Still gross, now more odd. This time guy 2 looks mad but he sees that guy 1 has taken a seat at the other end of the train, so guy 2 shakes his head and continues to read. This lasts for maybe 10 seconds before guy 1 decides he has another cough in him. As he appoaches guy 2, guy 2 states, "if you cough on me again I'm going to punch you." Fair warning, well deserved. So guy 1, looking chastened, kicks guy 2 in the shin. Now comical. Guy 2 gets up and guy 1 starts making laps of the train until the next stop where he gets out. Ahh, public transportation.
