A lovers' private quarrel has played itself out in a very public way — with the man begging forgiveness by wearing a sandwich board on a Manhattan square.
Jeff Ragsdale and Megan Brady had dated for a half year, until he got scared she'd leave him and told her she was "a lying, untrustworthy person."
His 29-year-old girlfriend stopped returning his calls.
So on Thursday, the 32-year-old computer consultant planted himself near her office in Madison Square Park.
On the sandwich board, he wrote, "I was verbally abusive. I'm sorry, Megan."
He repeated the spectacle Friday, hoping her colleagues would see him and tell her. Finally, one did.
She tells The New York Times she was touched by his willingness to humiliate himself. They planned to meet again.
