Hell on the subway

On the F train right now. A woman, about half a car away, has been ranting to her friend for the last 20 minutes about her son's school. Seems junior, despite his brilliance, has somehow fallen into bad graces with the administration. If you can remember looney tunes cartoon characters who talk in a rapid-fire style then you know what this woman's voice sounds like. Irritating does not begin to describe it. This person aspires to irritating, grating is more like it. I'd say about 15-25 people around me are cringing as well now. This ride can't end fast enough. Not the most auspicious start to the day.
