    Does anyone else find Sunday evening the worst/best (P.O.V.) time to ride transit? All the kooks, schizos and freaks seem to be on board at that time.

    This next guy needs an introduction. He appeared on the train covering his facing saying he was an angel of god looking for fellow angels, women aged 16-21 or something like that, he takes a quick look and says there are no angels here and storms off the train!!

    oh! PB's hobo story reminded me of something that happened last year, and i'll cross post with the Bathroom thread. I was on a uptown train really late at night on either a Friday or a Saturday (I'll just cab it these days). Somebody shit their pants, the the odor made it obvious, and I decided to switch to the express train which was (i'm guessing) two or three stops away. At the next stop some hobo enters the train, probably with the intent to beg for money, but immediately smells the poo and goes "oh daaaaaaammn" and bolts for the next subway car.

    I lol'ed at my desk thinking about that story.

    Wow, that's a new one for me.

    Saw a guy on the 1 train going uptown a few weeks ago wearing a full length zebra pattern trench coat with a pink boa giving people advice about what they should pay when they go to the natural history museum.

    Plus, the black guy hasn't been stopped and frisked without cause.

    What? Too soon?

    I hate when people throw their bag into an elevator to stop it from going up so they can get in. I mean it is just as bad as the subway doors people. In the lobby of my building there are tons of elevtors and some prick is always throwing his bag into the door. Just wait literally 1 second for the next one you prick.

    it's even worse when they don't bother with the bag and just use their arms to blast into the elevator Mr. Kool-Aid style. And they ALWAYS are going to the floor directly below yours.
