Subway and Public Transportation Etiquette - The People We Encounter - Page 62

Interesting!
post #917 of 1742

Not sure if this category of rider has been discussed, but they are my new nemesis on my daily subway commute. They lack a rudimentary understanding of momentum/Newton's laws and have ruined a nice shine on several pairs of shoes in the past month. 

 

Normally it's a Doc Martin's-wearing, lost in space tween or teen on a not too crowded train. Train is moving, said tween/teen is facing forward with feet together instead of a more logical sideways with feet slightly spread stance to brace for sudden acceleration/deceleration. As train comes to complete stop or accelerates quickly, person takes enormous 5-10 foot step forward/backward to brace themselves from falling, twice now landing on my newly polished shoes. I have learned my lesson and purposely watch for them now.

Some dude stepped on my suede shoes like 4 times the other day. It was a crowded train, so I couldn't just move. It was super annoying.

Can't you ward them off with a stiff arm?

I like the way you think. Usually I've got a briefcase in one hand and a iPhone in the other, so it might have to be an elbow.

Just wanted to say, great idea for a thread. Those descriptions of yours really sum up society quite nicely.

She probably just needs a good banana in her. Looks like she hasn't had one for years.
