Yeah, not the way to impress upon people the merits of higher education, as this woman recently found out on a New York subway train when she was dinged for talking too loudly and using profanity.
“Excuse me ? Do you know what schools I’ve been to and how well-educated I am?”
“I’m not a crazy person. I am a very well-educated person.”
Got it from The Huffington Post, which you can read here.
Update: The account that contained the video has been closed. I love the Internet.
