subway etiquette


Wednesday, July 22, 2009

Do:

• Allow people to exit the train before trying to enter
• Move to the center of the car
• Stand clear of the closing doors
• Give your seat up for a pregnant or elderly person
• Expect that if you are carrying a suitcase, three grocery bags, a cello, and two backpacks that someone MIGHT bump into you and/or your stuff.
• Let it go.

Do not:

• Use your cell phone's speaker function to listen to T-Pain
• Smoke a cigar
• Remove your shoes if you have not showered in the preceding 6-10 years
• Abuse the subway pole (and innocent bystanders) by gripping it with your butt cheeks in order to achieve a hands-free ride.

I thought that was a bare butt and almost threw up. Still gross though.

That was actually me signed in as Joel, having a husband is totally stealing my identity.

Oh my goodness. I love you. I am DYING! We should play sometime soon.. You crack me up :)

I think it's very fitting that the word verification I have to type in is "rearsu". Did you plan that?

OMG - I'm dying right now. That's hilarious. But I just had a horrible reminder of scaley skin foot guy on the subway, using his shoe to store the few dollars he had to his name. Yuck!
