Street Name: Pusha Yee
Unfortunately, I am not talking about drug dealers. They would be much easier to deal with. No, these pushers are much more annoying and don’t have anything for purchase that would help you relax while dealing with them. They come in many shapes and sizes, but most often they will range in height between 4”10 and 5”3, in age between 65 and 105, and in race between Asian and very Asian.
These feisty little Asian women can make you question your own strength if they want to get on the bus before you, which they always do. It doesn’t matter to them that you would give up your seat for them anyway, because they are 102 and carrying 18 bags of produce. No, they don’t trust you and will make sure they get to those 30 empty seats before you do. They will push you, elbow you, shit, they’ll stab you if it means they get their size 4 shoes onto those bus steps before you do.
I would never suggest violence, especially not towards the elderly, and more importantly, never on a public blog. Instead I will say this (it’s from the bible, so it can’t be wrong):
“Do unto others as they do unto you and your body.” [Matthew 7:12]
Last Seen: 510 Spadina and 505 Dundas streetcars.
