Back in the 90's there was this black British lady who rode the A/C. she would walk thru the cars saying "Change to spare" over and over again. she was well known, me and the boys named her the change to spare lady. She had hit rock bottom, clothes were in taters, speech slurred, and she was drunk half the time. One day after school I get on the C at Lafeyette going towards the Broadway junction.The train is packed.when I get to Nostrand she hops on and starts her little act walking through asking for change to spare. She must of had a bad week, cause on that day she smelled like the bottom of a dumpster. The whole second car cleared out to the 1st and 3rd. I run to the first and I'm standing by the sliding door between cars and everyone is yelling not to let her walk through. I' m laughing my ass off until we get to the Junction so I can run out. I have never seen so many NYers on a train react like that.

trains have been awful for the past two mornings. Nothing like a chilly Monday morning met by swarms of people affected by dodgy trains to ruin your inevitably crappy morning.

I found the comment entertaining, and this typo was particularly endearing.

Today was an awful day on the subway. Train was late and there was this couple with three kids in this giant fucking spaceship of a stroller taking up basically half of the car. A million irritated people and these two idiots looking into space like that don't see the problem.

That always drives me nuts.

Also drives me nuts when people have on huge backpacks on a crowded subway. Not only are they taking up the space of basically two people, but they are always slamming into people every time they turn around or the car jostles. Just take it off and put it on the ground between your legs, folks. Not that hard.

I swear, there needs to be like a license before people are allowed to ride the subway.

it's something about "is the train far enough into the station?", which the gif suggests. Apparently after any incident in the station, the operators are asked if they pointed, meaning was the train fully into the station.
