Holla on the T

I'm crammed on the T with all these BU students, mostly girls, and this guy slurs loudly to no one in particular, "Hey how do I get to Government Center?" When the girl next to me replies - he asks her again, and she replies again, and then he tells her that she has pretty hair. and she smiles and says "Thank you," and laughs nervously b/c now everyone on the T is staring at her.

And then he whispers under his breath, "I bet you're tight."

And the girl stands up at her next stop and and tries to squeeze away through the rest of the people on the subway, saying as she goes, "excuse me, I better get out this other door." And after she left, he turns around and asks these new girls who got on: "How do I get to Government Center?"
