Bad Habit or a Sister’s Act

I was walking up the subway stairs tonight and as usual people were pushing each other rather than patiently proceeding out single file that the small staircase requires. All of a sudden this guy gets fed up with waiting and starts cutting everyone off and shoved me aside; I almost stumble as I try to get out of his way.
I exclaimed in exasperation, ‘God, people.” All of a sudden, the woman in front of me turns around and said with a sad smile it’s such a 'bad ‘habit’ of people these days! To my surprise it was a nun, all at once I was wishing I could swallow my word choice! Ironic, don’t ya think!
