A tough Boston etiquette question

Nancy wonders:

What is the proper etiquette when encountering someone on the train with an Aaron Hernandez jersey? Ignore? Eye roll? Smdh?

harassment goes a long way...

where can I buy one?

I was trying to find an AH jersey over the weekend. no luck

short version: you can't.

all the new-from-the-store ones have been destroyed by the NFL, so you can't buy one. you'd have to find one second hand, but I can't really recommend that, because that would make you pretty twisted.

of course, you have apparently already been looking, so chances are you're already pretty twisted.

Just ignore and go about your

Just ignore and go about your busniess. Either the person is clueless, but they got the right to wear what they want.

Appeal to their sense of greed..

If it offends you, the proper etiquette is to say to the person:

"Hey, pal, you realize they're getting up to 300 bucks apiece for that jersey on eBay? That's some serious cheddar for a stupid shirt, yo."

Of course, you could go the tabloid route:

"Yo,with the 300 you could get for that shirt on eBay, you could buy a shirt that tells people you're not a fan of the dumbest motherfucker on Earth."

Serious Cheddar?

Dvdoff - you've been listening to too many games where Eck filled in for Remdawg.

I guess I would wonder why

I guess I would wonder why you would feel the need to comment or be offended? It's a T shirt ...

Err...

Do you understand why Twitter exists, right?

Is this a trick question?

Is this a trick question? because there is no etiquette on the T, it's the law of the jungle, the survival of the most beastly...

Treat them like you treat

By on

Treat them like you treat everybody else on the T - rudely. Because you are from Boston. Just don't touch the driver.

From Boston?

By on

You do realize a very large and significant number of people who ride the MBTA are not 'from Boston' or even MA? A significant, I'd dare say possibly majority, of people you'll encounter in central Boston, the touristy areas, etc., are likewise not 'from Boston', many not even from MA.

Generally, the few times I hear anyone speaking with a Boston dialect/accent, it's police, firefighters, emts, MBTA workers, etc., and even then many of them don't.

Don't blame all the 'rudeness', real or perceived, on people 'from Boston'.

Jeepers. Lighten up. You aren't from around here, are you?

Keep your hands off the driver
