Contrition and Acceptance on the 10

Lady by door gets bumped, says to offender: You could say “excuse me.”
Offender: I did say excuse me!
Lady: You could say it louder.
Offender: EXCUSE ME. How’s that?
Lady: It’s over. Hello, goodbye.
Offender: UGH. *exits*
Lady: Whatever. Bitch.
Morals of the story:
1) Lots of entitled bitchy people ride the bus (specifically the 10, apparently)
2) This is a lot like something that happened to me one morning on BART after I didn’t realize I bumped someone (who then passive-aggressively complained to her friend about me). I turned and apologized, though that didn’t stop her from bumping me later in retaliation (the queen of un-subtlety didn’t realize I could see her smirking and pointing in the window). Children, I tell ya.
If someone said they apologized already, just take their fucking word for it.
