Subway and Public Transportation Etiquette - The People We Encounter - Page 92

post #1366 of 1733
Apparently two maintenance cars collided in the Transbay Tube this morning, forcing east- and westbound trains to alternate on the remaining track. My ten-minute ride became an hour. To cherry on top was that there was a medical emergency on another train just as we were about to get moving. A woman in the training class I was in today spent two hours on the train from the East Bay.

While The Ridiculously Hot Chick is distracting it is really annoying when there is no good eye-candy on the train.

my personal annoyance is the stupendously hot chick that magically appears at the last second - 5 seconds before the 14th St USQ stop where 95% of the people get off. you did the scan around the car to see if there are any interesting people but she was hiding behind some behemoth/book/newspaper only to whisk by you for 3 seconds to disappear into the wild.

I'm jealous of the guy in earbuds/earphones who's having a religious experience listening to music. I wish I could be that way, but I'm too distracted by the sights.

I like to be alert in case I have to start doing karate kicks.

I once saw a guy in headphones so into it he literally jumped up in the air and did a jump kick on the USQ L train subway platform. I would bet $7,000 that he was in fact listening to Van Halen's Jump.

again, I'm jealous of passion for music like that (thats not drug induced).

That crazy fuck! Glad to see some people were willing to confront him.

looks like a busy station. NYPD would have gone all NYPD on that guy's ass before minute 1 ended.

Yeah, I'm not sure why there aren't more cops at the 16th Street station. There's an open-air drug market in the plazas at street level, and it's ground zero for crazy fucks like that guy. I think the main problem is that the agent called the BART police and waited before contacting SFPD.

CNN said it was 7 minutes before a cop showed up. That's awful.

on the flip side, SF has no "stop and frisk". Not that it would have applied here.

If only Elmo had stayed here longer. The two could've met and had a great time.
