The 10 Worst People You’ll See on the NYC Subway
Looking at you, manspreader
Isn’t judging strangers fun? First, we took a look at the unique crazy that occurs on the Jitney. But now it’s time to bring out the big guns.
The New York City subway.
You’ve got the manspreaders, the loud talkers, the sunglass wearers...These are the ten people we just can’t take anymore.
You know the guy: takes up two seats just because his precious inner thighs are more important than any other human being.
THE PREGNANCY AVOIDER
Really? Not one of you will offer your seat to a woman who’s practically dilated?
THE PREGNANCY ASSUMER
But the one day we wear a maxi dress….
THE POLE LEANER
Variations include the side lean, the arm wrap and (worst of all) the butt-cheek grip.
THE LOUD TALKERS
The entire train car now knows that Jared from Tinder, like, never texted her back. Or that Mort has gout.
THE FAST-FOOD EATER
Annnnnd she just grabbed the pole with her nugget-encrusted fingers.
THE PERSON WHO CHARGES FROM THE OUTSIDE
Cue the angry-conductor “LET THEM OFF” speech.
THE PERSON WHO CHARGES FROM THE INSIDE
Even worse, the seated narcissist who forces you to let go of the pole before the (crazy-packed) train comes to a stop.
Dude, chill. A new one comes like every three minutes.
THE SUNGLASS WEARER
Go back to Murray Hill. Unless you're Bradley Cooper.
