Talking Dictionary111. Subway Rider Needs Help


111. The N train stopped at the 23rd Street subway station. A young woman got on the train. She stood next to Doug. Doug didn't offer her his seat. The train pulled out of the station. The woman suddenly started talking loudly and slowly. "Hello, everyone! My name is Chris Brown. I'm a single mother. I have two children." Doug looked up at the woman. She looked clean. Her clothes looked clean. "I don't smoke. I don't drink. I don't use drugs. I would appreciate your help," she continued. She held a clear plastic cup in her left hand. She is very brave, Doug thought. To beg on a train takes bravery. Doug put a dollar bill into her cup. She didn't say anything. She walked forward, holding out her cup for others. The very next day, she got on his train again. She made her announcement again. Doug ignored her. 1.6
