One day, I got on the train's women-only car in the morning. But, the train was so crowded. I was standing next to a woman who was standing in front of another woman sitting down. Then, another woman got on the train at the next stop, but the train was already too crowded, and so the woman starting pushing me as she was getting on the train. When she reached up and grabbed the same strap that I was holding on to, I started to get angry. I was trying not to let the strap I was holding on to hit the head of the other woman I was standing next to, but when she grabbed it, I couldn't lift it up anymore with her hand on it. After that, she started reading a book, and not paying attention to the people around her. Unbelievable!. She was bumping into everyone around her as the train shook, including me! I had to put up with her all the way to Yokohama. Finally, I was relieved when it was time for me to get off, but she wouldn't get out of my way! Luckily, a seat suddenly became vacant as another passenger got off, and she rushed to sit down, so I got off the train before the doors closed. That morning was one of the worst. I hope that I never have such an experience again in my life. I have had enough already.
1. Why did Ms. N get angry?
2. Was Ms. N standing or sitting?
3. Why was the lady bumping into everybody?
4. How did Ms. N get off the train?

Good job Ms. N! I thought it was a funny story. How about you? What do you think? Have you ever had an experience like this? コメントを残して下さい。
