    How do you tell a woman not to touch you while riding the train? Is it acceptable to tell them off out loud? I've been just shutting up and keeping to myself as the trains here can get extremely jam packed. I just feel a bit uncomfortable when they get all grabby-grabby. Sometimes I readjust my location after people exit the train after a stop. I've also taken to wearing long parkas, but the weather is getting warmer and that may not be an option soon. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

    posted from another thread. How come my stations always end up with people of NO talent and who smell like poop?

    I don't know about you guys but I'm having to endure rides to & fro with crazies of every sort almost every day.

    This morning it was a guy pacing back and forth rapidly.
    Yesterday evening it was a guy announcing pitchers entering the game from the Yankee bullpen courtesy of AT&T.
    Then it was the guy that speaks with a retarded slur basically threatening people to give him money and berating those who don't.
    Let's not forget the women who walk thru like clockwork with their small child/baby asking for money.
    Then the guy that smells like every bad thing in the world carrying bags of bottles with clear liquids squirting the liquid everywhere.
    Don't even get me started on the guy wearing two different shoes, both on the wrong foot trying to push up on every girl that passes.

    Sigh.

    I'm surprised nobody else has posted this yet today:

    In any case, I wonder why people are surprised by this. Sometimes I walk through Chinatown late at night, and every other block or so there's some car with fogged up windows jumping up-and-down. Those Chinese are always having sex, and since they all live with their parents, they have no place to do it.

    Perhaps I don't get out much, but I don't expect to see that every day.

    Gave people head on the subway? I don't know. I'm sure there are more on here who have.

    I'd imagine there's plenty of daily "wtf man" moments on the L train. It's just a matter of spotting them, being stealthy enough to take a photo (so no pB), and then being cool with sending it to a news source. Thankfully, sometimes all of that happens.
