She’s a Metro-North conductor. She checked my ticket this morning and, in fact, checks it a few times a week.
She’s a Latina, about 30, pretty, and pleasant.
And she looks exactly like freakin’ A-Rod.
As such, it’s hard to return her pleasantness. She’s politely thanking me for showing my monthly pass, and I’m gritting my teeth so I don’t snap at her about sullying the Fall Classic with her announcement that she was spurning the Yankees to test the market, her crawling back to the Yankees after a heart-to-heart with Warren Buffett, and her overall state of arrogance, artifice and manufactured earnestness every time a video camera is near.
Has anyone else out there encountered A-Rod’s Sister on the train? Any of those conductors out there know who I’m talking about?
(I know, I know, time to get a damn cellphone camera.)
