Deal Drugs on the Subway?

Posted on November 24th, 2008 by The SUBWAYblogger in Crime

Or at least discuss strategies.  Yikes.

There’s two fairly large, old men that ride the subway every morning.  I see them at least a couple times a month together.  They’re already on the train when I get on, so they must live further uptown.

They have really distinct old-man gravely voices, and are quite round in the middle.  They usually sit across from each other on the train and chat about old men issues.

Today, I was close enough to be able to understand what they were talking about.

Turns out, they are old men drug dealers.  Good to know that age is just a number.

One was talking about a client that wants more than he’s able to get.  They were talking about it in a somewhat cryptic way, but you knew what they were talking about.

“He keeps asking for four, but i can’t get him that many.”

“Why not? I thought you got six when you go up there.”


“So you keep the rest for personal use.”

“Yeah, and my guy won’t sell me more than that.”

“How much you sellin’ for?  $15?”

“Uh huh.”

“So here’s what you do, you tell him you can get six but you’re gonna have to make two trips.  When you come back, say you could only get three.  Then when he makes a fuss about it, tell him you have a fourth, but that’s it.”

“I don’t know.”

“Or you sell him three today, and three tomorrow.  Then you still have six left over for the next time.”

So it was a meeting of the minds to say the least.  They then got into a discussion about people buying on credit and not paying up.  Good times.

    I live in Spain and I see a lot of similar stuff. I think that when people of a certain age loose their job, maybe they didnt have a proper education, then its difficult to get back on track. Dealing drugs is an easy alternative for them. Then you could always discuss if they get into drugs because of their new job or if they start dealing drugs to cover their own expenses.

    Maybe they were just selling viagra or other similar tools for men with problems :-)

    Its funny how you always have some picture of drugdealers being young people, but two old guys? hehe who knew. I will sure take a closer look on the older men when i take the subway from now on…

    @Maria Etiketten: Maria, I agree with you, those old guys are most likely selling viagra, levitra or one of those other get it up and keep it up drugs.

    @Penisforlengelse: Yeaaaah no. It’s different over here. They’re not doing this while they get their resumes together. Trust me.

    @FELICIA: Trust me…these guys haven’t been able to see their own equipment for years now. Gut is in the way. And any standing for prolonged periods seems to be a bit of a challenge.

    @dk.siluetteplus: I’ll try to snap a picture next time if I can be incognito enough.

    @The SUBWAYblogger:
    Don’t underestimate these guys with the gut, I have a friend who knows this fat old, ugly married guy in Borough Park who is buying levitra from someone in the neighborhood, in fact he begs for it a lot, he gets some for himself and also for his friends. He uses it when he’s with his girlfriend, a mexican lady who is also his employee. Picture those two at it and it would have to make anyone sick.

    It’s nice to know that you can find anything not only on the streets of NYC, but underground as well. That’s what NYC interesting (not good). Not all drugdealers are the stereotypical young, hip/hopped Teens-20 somethings you see elsewhere.

    Reading this makes me realize how cunning these people are. By the way, when I was a student in London, you could find a dealer on every corner :D kinda funny how this industry is getting bigger and bigger….hey guys, I have an idea: let’s make it legal and make them pay tax :D

    Thanks for expressing your ideas. I might also like to say that video games have been at any time evolving. Modern tools and revolutions have helped create sensible and fun games. These kind of entertainment video games were not really sensible when the concept was first of all being attempted. Just like other styles of electronics, video games also have had to evolve by many ages. This itself is testimony towards the fast growth of video games.

    Many thanks for sharing all these wonderful posts. In addition, the optimal travel plus medical insurance strategy can often reduce those problems that come with journeying abroad. The medical crisis can shortly become too expensive and that’s sure to quickly decide to put a financial problem on the family finances. Setting up in place the suitable travel insurance package deal prior to setting off is well worth the time and effort. Thanks

    One thing I’ve noticed is the fact that there are plenty of fallacies regarding the financial institutions intentions whenever talking about property foreclosures. One fable in particular is the bank needs to have your house. The bank wants your cash, not your own home. They want the money they gave you together with interest. Averting the bank is only going to draw a foreclosed realization. Thanks for your posting.

    Thanks for the tips you are discussing on this website. Another thing I’d like to say is the fact getting hold of copies of your credit file in order to inspect accuracy of any detail is the first measures you have to accomplish in credit repair. You are looking to clean up your credit reports from dangerous details problems that mess up your credit score.

    Thank you for this article. I might also like to convey that it can become hard while you are in school and starting out to establish a long credit score. There are many scholars who are just trying to live and have a long or beneficial credit history can sometimes be a difficult factor to have.

    I have learned result-oriented things through your blog post. Yet another thing to I have noticed is that in many instances, FSBO sellers can reject you actually. Remember, they’d prefer not to ever use your services. But if an individual maintain a steady, professional connection, offering assistance and staying in contact for about four to five weeks, you will usually manage to win a meeting. From there, a house listing follows. Thank you

    Thanks for your publication. What I want to say is that when searching for a good on the internet electronics go shopping, look for a web site with comprehensive information on important factors such as the privacy statement, safety measures details, any payment guidelines, and various terms and also policies. Always take time to investigate the help as well as FAQ areas to get a better idea of how a shop works, what they can perform for you, and exactly how you can maximize the features.

    Thanks for the suggestions you have discussed here. One more thing I would like to state is that computer memory demands generally go up along with other improvements in the technology. For instance, any time new generations of processor chips are made in the market, there is certainly usually a corresponding increase in the size demands of all laptop memory in addition to hard drive space. This is because the software program operated simply by these processors will inevitably surge in power to make use of the new technological innovation.

    Thanks for sharing your ideas with this blog. In addition, a fairy tale regarding the financial institutions intentions whenever talking about home foreclosure is that the standard bank will not have my installments. There is a certain amount of time the bank will need payments here and there. If you are as well deep in the hole, they may commonly call that you pay the particular payment in full. However, i am not saying that they will have any sort of repayments at all. In case you and the lender can find a way to work a little something out, the foreclosure approach may stop. However, in case you continue to miss payments under the new strategy, the home foreclosure process can pick up where it was left off.
