    Does my driver count as an occupant?

    Service staff never count for the 1%.

    I don't want to put on airs. I'm merely part of the 2%.

    If I had a driver, I would probably hate on him as much as I do my fellow subway commuters. Just how I am wired. Like a dick.

    the only time it's nice having a driver in Manhattan is when it's 1 AM and you've knocked back a bunch. Else it's just traffic and pedestrians.

    this needs to be added. Happened to me last night, 11 PM. Nearly empty train so I thought, "hey, I might as well sit down". I always sit next to one of the sides of the bench, never the middle. Next stop a dude gets on and stands in front of the door which is right next to me. Fuck me. The train air conditioning was blowind down from the ceiling above both of us effectively blowing his garlic-ness right into my face. He was asian. Somebody sat relatively close to me, so I couldn't scoot down and move, but the only alternative I had was to get up and walk towards the other side of the car (making me a Walker). I decided it had to be done, but right as I was about to move he got off (meaning he got on at one stop, and then got off at the very next stop).

    Not sure if it's on here already, but this thread should inspire someone to write about appropriate behavior in the office bathroom.

    Everyone would have understood if you'd decided to knock him out preemptively.

    I hate when my g/f takes photos of me on the train as well.

    Does everyone riding NYC subways have earbuds in?
