Subway and Public Transportation Etiquette - The People We Encounter - Page 96

So, I have about a 10 minute walk to the subway in the morning and in the summer, even though early, the humidity and heat makes it extremely uncomfortable. Outside the station there is usually a guy handing out AM New York, but today there was this idiot in the blazing sun in a suit with a booth set up from New York Life Insurance. "Nice suit, sir do you currently have life insurance?" I am obviously in a hurry to get to work people are piling into the subway, everybody with beads of sweat on their faces. I just said, "Are you kidding?" Retard.

Then on the train who do I get to stand near. A small woman with a GIANT FUCKING BACKPACK. I hate everybody.

How often does sexual harassment occur on a crowded subway car? I hear that announcement all the time and want to know if it happens as frequently as that announcement.

It probably does in seedy areas of the city late at night to drunk women. My gf's friends friend allegedly came to after being drunk and passed out on the subway with a homeless guy's dick in her mouth.

Well, like I said, "allegedly".

Apparently she was alone. It was like 3am.

Hearsay account (from this morning) of the all-too-common confrontation over a bump/can-you-move-over situation (black guy & white guy) - things get more heated as they go back & forth until the black guy yells "what are you gonna do, pull a Zimmerman?!" Crowd go quiet, as black guy glares at over slack-jawed tourist family sitting across from him - "what the f#ck are you LOOKING at!?"

Clearly an insanity defense is in order:

"I just love everything about it," he said in a July 9 interview at Rikers Island jail. "I love the atmosphere, I love the lights, I love the signals. I love the fact that it's moving all the time, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There's nothing negative I can say about the transit system."

They should've hired him early on.

Yeah... That's just sad.

And yeah, how much could they have saved, on legal fees and incarceration costs, by just giving him a small job somewhere in the MTA? Seems like it would have kept him out of trouble for sure.

Well, I forgot it's all union, so his annual salary would be about $300k, but the point still stands.

$300K salary, $150K pension when he retires at 35.
