Typing this on my cell so please excuse any shitty formatting. Also, I'm just bad at formatting.
Anyway, so I am an RN, and had just gotten a new job at a hospital in a pretty diverse part of Chicago, but nothing too sketchy. Across from my hospital was a Subway.
Every morning I'd get to work an hour early to have time to go over to Subway and get breakfast or a diet coke to wake me up (I'm addicted - now isn't the time to judge me)
This particular morning i walked in, and in the corner was a guy on his laptop with black garbage bags around him.
It was pretty typical for bums to hang out in the area and he was pretty disheveled looking, but had a laptop and a bluetooth.. he was a business bum.
He had a woman with him, that was also sort of messy looking but i didn't pay much attention to them and went about my morning.
As I'm eating i hear the man start loudly speaking on his cell phone. His tone was angry, then joking, then he'd get upset again.
He was saying things like "dont let them upset me, you know i will hurt them." His emotions seemed to be sort of all over the place, but hey, I'm from Chicago.
Its not weird to be around crazy people.
This is when things get a little weird.. he walks over to me with his female friend. He explains to me that she is in a nursing home and is being neglected in the home.
He was able to check her out for the day earlier and now they were going to find a lawyer to talk about the neglect. He explains that shes got bed sores all over her legs..
at which time he takes out his phone and shows me photos of this very overweight woman's very infected sores right above her vagina. He asks what i think they should do.
He asks if i think they're infected. This entire time, hes violently shaking. His tone would go from compassionate, to pissed off, to despair, to intense anger.
He's getting so close to me and seems to be getting upset with me. Hes talking about how all doctors and nurses deserve what is coming to them.
(I'm in scrubs with my badge on) and he felt very threatening. I'm 5ft tall and on the small side.. so i just sat there trying not to upset him.
He then instructs his friend to pull down her pants and diaper and show me her sores. She obliges, naturally. She pulls down her pants, vagina out, open sores exposed.. next to my breakfast.
I give them my medical opinion (that she needs to go to the fucking hospital) and desperately look around for someone in the restaurant to come to my rescue, to no avail.
After she shows me her vagina, the anti-nurse vigilante starts sobbing, telling her not to be ashamed of her sores..slamming his fist on my table repeatedly.
Then starts laughing hysterically, followed by more tears.. the look in his eyes was something i will never forget. It was like watching someone have a total psychotic break.
Even the woman he was with seemed to be scared of him
When his mood stabilizes a bit, i use that as my chance to throw my laptop in my bag, mumble something about being late for work, wish them luck, and fucking bolt for the door.
So, crazy subway psycho, and his vag flashing girlfriend, let's not fucking meet again.
