Subway Brawl Over Spaghetti
My Fox NY ^ | 18 Mar 2011 | LUKE FUNK

Posted on 03/18/2011 5:23:19 AM PDT by Gamecock

A brawl broke out on a New York City subway car after one passenger apparently got upset over another passenger eating a big container of spaghetti on the crowded car.

The video was posted to YouTubeand first reported by nyctheblog. The user who uploaded it says that it involved a Brooklyn train. There is no indication of what line it happened and what day it took place.

In the video, which contains profanity, starts with some arguing. Then one woman says, "What kind of animals eat on the train?"

The woman eating the spaghetti responds, "What kind of fat ****** looks like you?"

The back-and forth continues until both women stand up and get in each other's faces. Then the spaghetti went flying and the two passengers start a physical confrontation. Other people on the broke up the fight but the back and forth continues until the video ends.

One woman with some class and common respect trying to teach another who is just above an animal a more decent way to behave in civilization.

Wasted effort.

The poor woman who was attacked had no idea she was dealing with someone who has probably been trained since she was a toddler to look for any excuse at all to attack “whitey.”

Cat fight with Spaghetti thrown in for good measure!

ELAINE: Well, I tried, but he thought it was some sort of cat fight.

KRAMER: Cat fight?

ELAINE: Ok, why? Why do guys do this? What is so appealing to men about a cat fight?

KRAMER: Yeye cat fight!

JERRY: Because men think if women are grabbing and clawing at each other there’s a chance they might somehow kiss.

KRAMER: T-t-t-t...

From the article: "What kind of animals eat on the train?" Obviously a graduate of one of the finest Prep schools....

Well, personally, I hate public transportation of any kind.

But if I HAD to use public transportation, I'd rather be sitting next to someone eating spaghetti, than sitting next to a fricking gum chewer cracking it in my face at 90 db. Eeeeewwww. Gross.

I think the woman who started to criticize the woman eating spaghetti was out of line. The subway commute is not the time and the place to give etiquette lessons to complete strangers who didn’t seem to have been bothering her in the first place.

We didn’t see the whole incident, so maybe the two younger women did single her out and insult her first, but it really looks like she just picked a fight.

I could never figure out why people would eat on the subway- it’s like eating in the bathroom. Nonetheless, the white woman was wrong. The other two women weren’t bothering her or sitting near her. Just mind your own business. Kudos to the man who tried to calm things down.And he actually protected the white woman from getting hurt. Showed some real courage. He was the only sensible one there.

you just knew that this involved one or more people of a certain cultural minority...

Commuter train culture is foreign to me. Is eating on a train considered animal like behavior?

First time I’ve how women wearing burka’s eat in public.

An utterly ridiculous way to live.

This would be comical if they weren’t forced to live that way.

I mean, supposing Kissof is lying about that fourth plane, just looking for an excuse to clobber us.

I mean, if the spaghetti hits the fan, now we’re really in trouble....

I tend to agree. If the woman eating was sitting next to the Emily Post wannabee slobbering spaghetti sauce all over her, that would be a different story. As it was—live and let live would have been a better approach.

I've seen all kinds of food being eaten on the subway. Most of the time it just makes me hungry. I once saw a guy gnawing on what looked like a roasted head of a pig. He wasn't bothering anyone, and no one bothered him.

I say, let them eat cake, or whatever...

why say anything? seriously.. unless the woman was flinging spags around the car, why gives a fark what she’s eating. It’s not like she was pinching a loaf or draining herself.

If you are going to live in a nobamaville you need to show some tolerance. If you don’t have that ability I guess going Bronson as in “Deathwish” is an option. However, I suggest leaving the scene to the animals and living your life free.

I grew up in that benighted city and you cannot appreciate how much I rejoice at the thought of never, ever going back, except for funerals.

Still, this reminds me of when the airlines stopped serving snacks, especially on short flights and people started showing up with take out salads and meals as carry on. The woman sitting next to you would immediately flip the tray open and start on her lunch. Why couldn’t she have eaten that on the ground?

Irrespective of all of the idiotic comments on this thread, of course it is.
There are laws against it as a public health issue and I don’t think that anyone here would want to enter a car after about 50,000 people have been eating in it without cleanup.

Can you imagine the amount of refuse after a day of New York denizens have been eating in it?

One day last summer I took the MARTA train to the airport to pick up my Grandkids when they flew in to visit. There was a young black girl sitting across from me who was eating a burger/fries. I remember thinking how rude that was and all sorts of negative things.

At the airport, I went into the newstand shop to buy some gum. There was the same young girl .... she was the clerk in the newstand and she smiled sweetly and said, “weren’t you the lady sitting just across from me on the train a few minutes ago?”

I said, “yes, and the negative thoughts creeped back in.” Then she said added, still smiling sweetly, “yeah, sorry about me eating on the train,I hated to have to do that, I know everyone was staring at me, but I had finished my shift at the hospital late because of an emergency and just barely had time to get to my other job at the airport and if I was going to eat today, the only option was to grab something to stuff down on the train ride.”

I felt so horrible for all my accusing thoughts about her and vowed I would try to never judge others. We just never know the full extent of the circumstances.

Something tells me, the way the man jump in to help the one woman, that the two young girls started this before the camera was rolling. Just a guess but the lone woman seemed to be answering to something the two younger ones had been saying when the camera started.

The victim made a rookie mistake. When dealing with gutter trash like the spaghetti skank you say don’t ask them if they want to end up in jail, you ask them if they want to end up BACK in jail. “I’ll call your parole officer right now.” is a useful follow up phrase.

Also, anyone who considers that subway car “crowded” has never been to NYC. They actually have recorded messages on NYC subways now, reminding passengers that a crowded train is not a valid legal defense against sexual abuse charges. Seriously.

I live about 50 miles from the city, go in 3-4 times a year, concur with your assessment on the Subway. Someone could put an eye out.
