I walk up and usually people move out of the way or even make an attempt to to let people get to the middle. And this fat Latino guy with a gold grill in his teeth and dressed like a rapper was yelling at me that the train is full. I pointed to all of the room and said what about all of that room. Meanwhile the car full of Latinos are just staring at me blankly, still not even making room, when there clearly was room. He is still yelling at me that the train was full and I won't fit so I told him to go fuck himself before the doors shut. I was livid.
pB, you need to be careful here - often those pockets of unpopulated trainspace are empty for a reason. just as cars w/ broken A/C will be less crowded, an full/half/quarter empty car often is the result of either a godawfulstenchemitting homeless guy or a giant puddle of puke/p!ss/s#it. it's funny how people will put up w/ a raving lunatic (as long as they are not actually swinging a knife around), but it is the truly brave person who can endure an all out olfactory assault
