Subway and Public Transportation Etiquette - The People We Encounter - Page 82

Just had to deal with this bitch and her kids. The train wasn't that full this morning and this woman kept pulling her three kids closer by the door boxing me. they were like on top of me. It was really aggravating. Why box me in when there is a ton of room? Why touch strangers if you don't have to. I wanted to punch her fucking teeth in.

Many women seem to think the fact they've managed to squeeze out a sprog somehow entitles them to act like the world belongs to them.

I was changing my boots in a boot locker recently and some five year old was lying down taking up a whole bench - there was nowhere else to sit so I pushed him up a bit and sat at the end. He didn't care but his mother was like "hey mind his feet". FU, you can see there's no where else for me to sit so I'm just suppose to wait here for your kid to stop mucking around?

See "Supermom" on the first page. I hate parents where you need to see to their every whim because they have kids. Kids doesn't entitle you to special treatment. It's not my fault you have a little fucking brat.

every once in a while I'll see parents who are model citizens with their kids on public transportation. I've noticed no correlation with who these people are as it has spanned all genders and ethnicities. The only sure thing is its rarity.

the mothers with awful brat kids are usually white, though sometimes black. the white parents usually have bratty kids and they are bratty parents, the black parents usually have bratty kids and they have an aire of "i can't deal with this shit anymore so I'm just going to tune it all out and sit here in peace".

the space-ship sized stroller mothers during rush hour are usually latina.

I remember a long time ago I was at a restaurant/pizza place with my parents and these kids were all at one table and the parents at another. My mother saw some of the kids opening the salt and pepper shakers and spitting into them. My mother said something to the kids and one of the mothers flipped a shit on my mother. Typical, upper-middle class, entitled bitch. I wanted to punch her teeth down her throat.

there is a correlation to how boisterous the kids are the further you go out into the boroughs on certain trains.

the 4/5/6 trains heading into the upper upper ES/bronx and the L heading to broadway junction in my experience have kids/teens/adolescence getting more boisterous/foul mouthed the further out the line goes.

I've done the stupid thing and tried to commute out to JFK on a weekday afternoon and just see kids running amok on the L train heading to the broadway junction stop. Its wicked embarrassing because you can see tourists who decided to try to commute to JFK with their travel bags and they're scared/regretting the choice of commuting to JFK by subway while kids are yelling/swearing at the top of their lungs playing chase running full speed weaving in between/banging into large suitcases and tourists and commuters.

It doesn't take many trips to JFK to know that it is always worth the money to take a cab.

A coworker lives in Riverdale, Bronx. He said people get shittier and shittier on the subway past 100th street. Not surprising. It is a shame Riverdale, such a great neighborhood is surrounded by shit.

I have a good friend who lives in the Van Courtland area... its like the twilight zone.... Forest Hills Gardens Queens has this too... where you'll be in a typical NYC borough ugly urban sprawl (corner stores and cramped housing) then boom... there's these huge houses/mansions with large yards on tree lined streets.

Forest Hills Gardens even has these one lane private roads in-between the private properties with the mansions on so owners can pull into their hidden driveways.

Thats the thing... Forest Hills Gardens actually has nearby subway stops/bus stops. So the millionaires who live in those mansions with huge lawns and private one lane roads can hide in plain sight and commute via subway/buss easily. Van courtland you still will need to hike it when you get to their mansion-ed areas.

this. Especially if you're traveling as a pair where the cost difference between a bus and taxi is marginal.

coming back from France last year, our bags weighed approximately 9,000 pounds, and the cab ride right to our front door was worth every penny.

Totally, also a cab ride from CdG to Paris is worth every euro!

If you're just going to let 'em rip - why not do it on the subway like everyone else? mwink[1].gif

Probably gypsies trying to steal your wallet.
