Overheard in Mastic Part 3

I started out early this morning. Got to Mastic/Shirley train station 10 minutes till departure, 7:47am train to Penn. Get dropped off in front of the ticket machines just adjacent to the shuttered Station House that hasn't had open doors in decades. A 30-something-year-old-man was posted on his Huffy BMX bike just in front of the ticket machines. We squeezed between the dude and the machine to make a ticket purchase.

Dude on bike " Yo I am inna situation right now, can I get 5 dollars to buy wipes for my baby?"

So I respond, "No, I need the money to buy a ticket."

Dude kicks back, "How bout a dolla den?"

I just giggle as another woman approaches to buy a ticket from the next machine.

Dude kicks it to her, " Yo, you single?"

Whats the baby momma gonna think?
