Subway and Public Transportation Etiquette - The People We Encounter - Page 11

post #151 of 1742
For your approval:

Motherfucker-be-inchin-up-on-me guy
It's a crowded platform, I know. And it's rush hour. You want desperately to get on the next train, but you arrived a little late and now you're behind everyone standing on the edge of the platform as the train pulls in. So what do you do? You stand behind me within breathing distance. Even though you're not touching me and I can't see you, I know you're there. Because all that stands between me and the front page of the Post is a very gentle push. You're probably not a homicidal schizophrenic a few hours removed from Bellevue. But you've become an unintended threat regardless. SO MOTHERFUCKER, BACK THE FUCK UP 'FORE I CUT YOU!

Does NYC have abundant free public toilets or does one have to pay to use them. London certainly doesn't seem have many free toilets now, except maybe using the McDonald's, etc. ones. So the homeless will probably just go wherever they can.

I wish there were abundant toilets to pay for. Try being stuck on 6th ave in the village and having to shit. You're fucked.

Public toilets in NYC are a huge problem. They are few and far between.

Some of the public transportation hubs (Port Authority, Penn Station, etc.) have free toilets. But even if a homeless person can't find a free toilet, duck into an alley or behind a bush in the park or something. You don't have to just whip it out or pop a squat in the middle of the sidewalk.

Yes, but you seriously those bathrooms are like brownfields.

Maybe the homeless of NYC don't have access to the internet to find where they are? Also are these restrooms free or does one have to pay? Many appear to belong to private establishments as well, like McDonald's, which are meant for their paying customers. As opposed to municipal public toilets, which are meant for everyone including the homeless.

Problem many cities, there's almost no free municipal public toilets these days. So the homeless and destitute will probably just go where they can, in the street or whatever. In London taking a leak can be quite expensive.

MikeDT- my post was for patrickB for when he starts percolating on 6th Ave (which i thought i made clear by quoting his post), and not in any way intended to address the needs of the homeless

The men's room in Washington Square Park should be avoided unless you are a voyeur (or exhibitionist).

Of course, but any posts here are for anyone to read and respond to if they want. I was providing some input relevant to the current subject of "homeless people (male and female) urinating in the middle of the sidewalk in NYC." .... probably because it's the only place they can go, and if there's any homeless on 6th Avenue, that's probably what they'll do.

if you can hold it for a couple of blocks and get over to the west side you'll have much more privacy....

I got on a train last week and saw a roomy, available seat in a fairly crowded car. Normally I don't care if I stand but I was tired and took advantage of the opportunity. After a few seconds I started to smell something awful. God only knows what I sat in puzzled.gif Probably dried urine. I got up and watched the same thing happen again to someone else. (Why don't people warn others of these things? It was obvious that people realized it but no one said anything.) Later someone sat there whose sense of smell must not have been very good. shog[1].gif

Including you, apparently.
