Valid argument on NYC subway:
A woman was SITTING on one of the subway turnstiles this morning. Just sitting there, texting, like she was in her living room. During rush hour.
Really wanted to swipe my card so the turnstile would turn and she'd fall on her ass.
i had this last night - very crowded car and 2 "ladies" sitting across from each other (but with solid walls of standing passengers btwn them) holding a loud conversation back & forth w/ lots of cursing, boyfriend, what-stop-we-at?, etc. talk
Was on the E train this afternoon and this homeless looking guy was sleeping in the first car. Nothing unusual except at some point he pulled his pants down and then revealed his erect pen0r through his boxers. We all moved to the other side of the car.
A more common occurrence: folks stop and stand in front of the turnstile, put their briefcase/purse down, rummage through for their card, and then swipe through.
this happens all the time, but it's not limited to just the subway. Any area that requires some sort of action to gain entry inevitably leaves people fumbling with purses or bags. Some people just don't have their shit together, and we all suffer for it.
Can't keep that tiger in the cage, yo. Needs room to roam.
disagree. Sure, USQ has 25 subway entrances, but most of these are 3 or 4 turnstile lanes at most. With MTA's awful card swipe fail rate, any error really adds up, especially at rush hour.
I, like I think most of you, also need to swipe a magnetic or RFID card in to get to the elevators in my work building and I see this issue all the time too in addition to the subway. Agree with gomestar. Is it really that difficult to step aside while the people that do have it together can go through first?
It's like it only occurs to them once they get to the turnstile that they'll need to swipe. I want to ask them, "You do this every day, right?"
the woman cutting the onion, aside from her atrocious knife skills, can someone explain that? Was it a youtube prank?
yes, just somebody trying to see WTF other people would make of it.
The Fairway that opened up in my neighborhood occupies 3/4 of the sidewalk space that I use to walk to and from work with their loading equipment and product at all hours of the day. Sometimes their workers are dangerously handling their motorized hand jacks and pedestrians have to abruptly stop or jump out of the way to avoid getting run over.
Even when they aren't doing a loading, they leave their equipment on the sidewalk and rope it off, still taking up most of the sidewalk space. It's annoying as fuck.
I assume they have a permit to use the sidewalk and occupy ~150ft or so of parking for their delivery trucks, but it's really annoying to have to deal with.
