Tuesday evening, a commuter on the T in Boston observed a man approach a woman and — without any prior interaction — tell her to lose weight. The observing passenger was outraged on the woman's behalf and, unable to confront the man before he got off the train, took to Craigslist to air her grievances in what might be the most appropriately scathing missed connection of all time:
To the shitstain who made a woman cry on the T - w4m - 30 (Stony Brook T Station)
You got up right before the Stony Brook stop and said something in a low voice to the woman next to you. You exited the train and she burst into tears. I asked her what you said—-and in between sobs she goes, "he said 'Have some respect for yourself and lose some weight'"
The scene is set! And now this offending dickbag is about to get the reading of a lifetime:
Oh shit, you said that to a complete fucking stranger, an innocent person trying to read a book on her ride home!!! Yeah dog, you sure did, and then you turned heel and walked off like the miserable coward you are.
You publicly humiliated another human and made her cry. How truly fucking horrifying of you. She was totally stunned, and devastated. . .is that what you wanted to see happen? Are you that much of a nightmare that you are PLEASED by making people cry? Total strangers even? I don't think I can fully express to you what an absolute skidmark you are, but here goes:
You: blond, slicked hair, hipsterish. You manage to be both tasteless and sanctimonious, and something tells me you brag about loving Bukowski even though you only made it 80 pages deep into Women. You definitely think you're smarter than everyone, and you love reflective surfaces. You work in design/tech/oh wait, who cares, you don't fucking matter. You treat women like garbage, but don't worry—-we hate you. You have a stank on you, and a lot of us can smell it...truly a dookiestain made flesh. You don't have an original thought under that stupid haircut. You are a straight up fucking bully, and you should be ashamed of yourself. Bullies are the absolute worst.
The thing is, part of you knows this, and you're upset that no one treats you like the special snowflake you believe yourself to be. So you say horrible things to strangers in public to make yourself feel better. Stop being such a fucking bully and shitting on other humans just because your wounded-ego feels like taking a dump. No really, just fucking stop.
Any of my fellow feminist vigilantes who might be reading this: keep an eye out for a white dude, around age 30, who looks like a wacker version of Macklemore, if that's possible. Make sure you remind him of his insignificance.
And to the woman to whom this human diarrhea pile directed his steaming ego turd: keep your head up girl, it's not even about you. I hope it didn't ruin your day.
How many Craigslist missed connections/personal ads include the word "dookiestain"? More than you'd think, I bet!
As is the case with anything on the internet, there's always the chance that this isn't real, but what is real anyway? Are you real? Am I real? PROBABLY NOT.
Anyway, see it as a win-win. If it's fake, then some poor woman wasn't verbally harassed on the train. If it's real, then the person who wrote this just delivered a slam dunk ass whooping AND coined the phrase "like a wacker version of Macklemore."
UPDATE: We have confirmation! All events leading up to the best missed connection of our time did indeed happen. To the dude involved: Go fuck yourself. To the woman who wrote this masterpiece: We salute you. To the woman who was targeted: The poster is right. This says way more about him than it does about you.
