Only 1,944 People Said Something?
Here’s a new SubTalk poster I love…
“Last year 1,944 New Yorkers saw something and said something.”
First of all, this must be false. Of that low number, I bet they weren’t all New Yorkers, but we can let it slide.
What I find hilarious is that all year long, there were only 1,944 people who actually said something. That’s only 5.3 people a day.
How many millions of people ride NYC Transit every day? Only 5 saw suspicious shit and reported it.
There’s easily that many people passed out in the middle of a hallway every day. That alone can account for all the reports in a year.
Here’s an idea. Maybe if cellphones worked in the subway, people would actually call to report things! What good is an 800 number when you’re cellphone doesn’t have a signal?
Oh and I love when they say “Tell an MTA employee.” Because that’s sooooo easy. Let me tell you, there’s only 3 MTA employees remotely near you. The train operator, door operator, and the person sitting in the token booth. None of them are easily reachable.
Live from the subway, back to you in studio…
