(I am a maintenance worker who is currently working on a new subway platform & track with my coworker. There are stairs down to the platform from the entrance. A woman comes barreling down the stairs.)

Woman: Did I miss the train? HEY YOU (to me) do you know when the train comes?

Me: Um, lady, the trains don’t come to this station because it’s under construction.

Woman: What do you MEAN? THE TRAINS DON’T COME? I am going to be LATE to a VERY IMPORTANT MEETING!

Me: I’m sorry but I can’t magically make the trains come. Try taking the bus.

Woman: WHY DIDN’T YOU F******* A******S WARN ME? HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW THAT THE STATION WAS CLOSED? WHAT THE F*** AM I SUPPOSED TO DO NOW?

Coworker: Maybe you could do what <My Name> said and take the bus? Or better yet, just f*** off?

Woman: Well I NEVER. I have NEVER heard such INSOLENCE before. I’ll have you know that I probably make in a WEEK what you make in a f******* year.

Me: Be that as it may, your train still isn’t coming. Leave and let us do our jobs.

(The kicker? She was wearing ratty sweatpants and a stained shirt, and she had to push through THREE seperate “DO NOT COME THROUGH” and “STATION CLOSED: RENOVATION IN PROGRESS” signs.)
