Words of wisdom from the MTA that escaped some dude recently.
AMNY Tracker reports that today’s morning Q train snafu was due to a subway surfer. No, not some idiot riding inside the train pretending to surf down the middle of the isle. No, instead it is usually a rider on top of (as in the outside) the train or clinging to the side.
This practice is discouraged, hence the MTA Subchat campaign pictured above.
Who in the hell would actually do something like that? Well, just last month, SUBWAYblogger posted a video clip of an entire train’s worth of idiots riding on the outside of the train. Of course, that was a different country, but you get he point.
It took 45 minutes to get the guy off the top of the Q train which stopped between stations. If I were stuck on that train, it wouldn’t have mattered if the guy got off alive because I would absolutely killed him anyway. He would have had a better shot at surviving the trip on the roof.
“It’s happened before and usually when it happens, the person gets killed,” said Transit spokesman Charles Seaton.
Uhhh…yeah. No shock there.
For that matter, do kids that live in New York have any right to complain about being bored? I mean are these kids that bored out of their minds that they have to train surf for entertainment? You essentially live at the center of the modern universe, yet you cant find anything better to do with you time than this kind of crap?
