B!tch on the Street

Days and nights in New York City are tough enough without having to deal with all the sh!t this city dishes up. B!tch on the Street tells the tale of two ladies making their way through this crazy town...one freak at a time.

The Subway Preacher

Anyone who rides the subways with any regularity in NYC has undoubtedly encountered a subway preacher at some point. There are many subway preachers of all nationalities both men and women. The least obnoxious of the group are the ones that just walk through spouting supposedly biblical quotes (personally I think most of them make that shit up to suit their needs) and then move on to annoy the next car load of straphangers. The most obnoxious are the ones that plant themselves in the middle of the car and spout their religious crap non-stop. This BOTS was unfortunate enough to have the latter on my train this morning. No one pays any attention to them and yet they continue on telling us how we're all sinners and are going to hell because of our godless ways! All the while making up bible quotes.
I am all for free speech and freedom of expression but seriously at 8AM no one wants to hear this shit. Do they honestly think they are going to convert people with their obnoxious ramblings?! I just wanted to read my book in peace in quiet but instead I had to listen to that crap for 20 minutes. So to the Subway Preachers of NYC I say "SHUT THE FVCK UP!" You have been bitch slapped!
I swear I'm really going to snap one of these mornings and actually bitch slap one of them and it won't be my fault. I am being driven to violence. Is that a viable defense in court?

ahhhh you are so right! Maybe I'll just bitch slap and run and hope for the best!

They need to be stopped because SOME OF US get migraines and can't take their crap any longer! Next time, slap 'em and blame it on a migraine. I know that would be a viable defense.

Kelly you are soooo right! Any humane person would totally agree with you! The Migraine Defense! Love it!

"Sorry officer but I have a migraine and this bitch wouldn't stop yapping"

"Oh perfectly understandable miss, you're free to go."

you are way too lenient. i had to deal with one of these motherfuckers on my commute this morning on the 3 from 96th down to 14th and he would NOT SHUT UP. on other occasions (the m60 bus from 116th and bway to 125th st Metro North station) i've been literally coated in preacher spit by a crazed jesus freak. a better solution would be to go Sharia-style and cut off the offending body part of repeat offenders: in this case, the tongue.
seriously though? thank you street preacher for making me a little more racist (come on, when was the last time you saw a white guy doing this) and a little more hateful towards christians. oh, and thank you for making my morning a little bit more miserable. i guess that's what christianity's all about: making us feel miserable so that they can step in and save the day with their superstitious bullshit. i could never believe in a religion that endorses annoying people like that.
