Ok, so this morning’s train was plagued by door holders. Actually, it wasn’t door holders so much as people getting stuck in the doors as they tried to squeeze onto the overful train.
So here’s my idea to combat people who insist on cramming into over packed trains:
You know the black, rubber gasket on the doors where the doors come together? Basically, the part that pinches you when you get stuck in the door. The part that grabs onto your coat and won’t let go. You know…the “door bumpers” if you will. (see illustration)
Ok that part of the door is where I suggest they make out of ink pads. Instead of rubber, they should make into a huge rubber stamp. That way, if some gets stuck in the doors, it is going to leave huge black ink lines on them.
Knowing that, there’s no way anyone would stand near the doors as they were closing if they knew they were going to get “stamped” by the doors. Wouldn’t wont to ruin that new denim body suit!
Ok ok…we don’t need to make it out of permanent ink. It could be something washable. As long as it is something that would make you look like a compete ass in your morning board meeting.
