Overheard on the subway from Stephansplatz in the direction of Leopoldau the other day, two men, both in their early 30s, one wearing a very large coat with beer cans loaded into every pocket, and both drinking beers as they sit haphazardly on the bench seats (refer to map for humor):

Guy One: What station is this?

Guy Two: It’s Vorgartentstr├če.

Guy One: Shit! That’s not right.

Guy Two: Yes it is. That’s what it says right there: Vorgartenstra├če. Look!

Guy One: But you said it was the stop after Stephansplatz.

Guy Two: That is where we’re getting off.

Guy One: But this is Vorgartenstra├če

Guy Two: Where are we getting off?

Guy One: The one after Stephansplatz?

Guy Two: Nestroyplatz? Is that it?

Guy One: Yes.

Guy Two: We missed the damned station! We were supposed to get off at the stop after Stephansplatz.

Guy One:That’s not Nestroyplatz?

Guy Two: That’s what I told you: the one after Stephansplatz.

Guy One: Get off the damned train. We need to go back!

Guy Two: You’re such an asshole!

    …and as the saying goes, “Instant Idiot – just add alcohol.” But I am presuming that these nerds aren’t guzzling Null Komma Josef.
