Well-Educated Person Wrongly Accused of Being Loud on Train


According to the description of this video taken on a Metro-North train recently, this spat between a passenger and a conductor began after the passenger “was talking too loud on the train when the conductor politely asked her to keep it down and stop using profanity or to take it to the vestibule.” Now, there’s no way we can really know the full context of this disagreement, or whether or not the conductor’s suggestion was warranted. But the passenger does repeatedly point out that she is “a very well-educated person” who has attended good schools, so she is automatically blameless. Nobody who is well-educated has ever talked too loudly.
