From CS:

The scene: Orange Line, approaching Vienna.

With people in car standing, a man wearing large (6-inch long, by the looks of it), silver cross around neck has his feet stretched out across his seat (an Unsuck Riders-We-Hate no-no).

Lounging up a storm, he’s reading newspaper, casually dropping read sections on the floor.

The train pulls into the station, and we get up to leave.

A rough transcript of what ensued:

Me (pointing at pile on floor): I think you forgot your newspaper.

Him: (Shaking head knowingly) It’s alright.

Me: No, it’s not alright. You’re not supposed to leave trash on the train.

Him: Don’t be so petty.

Me: Me, petty? You’re the one who left the trash on the train.

Him: This country is falling apart.

Me: I agree with you there, but that doesn’t change the fact that you left your trash on the train.

Him: Don’t be so petty.

Me: You’re the one who left the trash. Where do you get off doing that?

Him: You should go to church more. Don’t be so petty.

Whereupon we parted on the platform.

Made me wonder: Where would Jesus litter?
