Can you tell it is back to school season or what! Holy smokes.
It has been a while since my regular afternoon train has been this packed, and it is quite obvious why: students. The colleges are back and so are the high schools. Tons and tons of young people on board.
I say young person as [...]

Holy crap, if you gotta take a leak once you are “in the system,” you are SOL. I had a Snapple too many at my desk today (it was that sorta day) and didn’t hit the head before leaving. Wow was that the wrong move of the century.

Gothamist had an interesting story yesterday. Every now and then, they do an “Ask Goth” feature. This one was about the subway.

“Here is what happened yesterday, which is pretty typical: I was trying to change to the express train from the local, and as we pulled into the station I saw my train across the platform. I was not the only one. There were a whole bunch of us at the door eagerly waiting to leave the train and jump on the express across the tracks. I just happened to be in front, at the door. So anyway, by the time the doors opened, there was a fair-sized guy standing right in the middle in front of the door, with two other people standing at the sides but just blocking enough of the door so that no one could get out.

So I said “excuse me,” and he did nothing. Not a move by anyone. So, having no choice really (I certainly couldn’t back up, there being all those people behind me, and besides, we want the express!) I had to push between the big guy and the others, at which point he LAUGHED AT ME.”

Of course, I have a few ideas on how to solve this:
