    You should absolutely get an iron for your office. Take off your pants and iron them first thing on arrival, smoking a cigarette while doing so.

    I rarely sit.

    I use to sit, but hated having to make a split second judgement on whether someone was seat-worthy or not. Trying to quickly assess a person's age, mobility level, pregnancy status, and degree of handicap is just too much stress. Even the blanket assessment of gender needed to fit the "always give up your seat for a woman" rule is hard enough at times. Better off standing.

    They don't want anybody to fuck it up, that's why.

    Yeah, sorry. I couldn't figure out to embed with the video starting at the appropriate time.

    MTA needs to spend money on infrastructure, not these luxuries. I get it though. It is easier to spend capital dollars than do maintenance.

    Hahahahaha that is hilarious.

    I always get a kick when people see pictures of people breakdancing and shit on the subway and comment on how cool it must be to see that stuff on your daily commute. It's not cool, or cultural, or anything other than loud and annoying. I don't want someone blasting shitty music and swinging their legs in my face when I am trying to go home after a long day.

    God that sounds so obnoxious and fucking selfish on their part.

    Not the right place or time to do it, especially if they're doing it during rush hour.

    nice work, pB. If one feels like the must break dance, they they should keep it to the platforms or something. Or union square park.


    there was one female hobo that started to sing on my train a few weeks ago. God she was awful. I'd be more moved by a fake store about her AIDS or something.


    last night, on the S, there were these two young guys that did a song together (they were clearly not homeless). They were actually quite good, and they made like $15 on the 5 minute ride.

    The ones I can't stand are the folks that come thru the train with kids. Daily. Really? There's this one young dood that sits on the stairs going down to the train talking on his cell with his like 5 y/o daughter begging for money. Ugh.

    yeah that's annoying. The kids always look bored out of their minds, and I usually wonder why aren't they in school.


    one time, this woman was going through with her child claiming how hungry he was, but the kid had to be pushing 300 lbs. My mind couldn't choose between "he doesn't look that hungry" and "if you're that fat, then you're always starving"

    I remember some beggar was going on about how hungry he was and he looked at me and said, I haven't eaten I bet you've eaten, (I'm not fat) I kind of chuckled because, well, I don't eat during the day. I wanted to call him a pussy.
