Some performers in a subway can actually be pretty entertaining. For others, the reason they're not famous is pretty obvious. But it doesn't matter, because if you're stuck in a subway car with one of them, you're literally a captive audience.
No matter where you stand, you're bound to get an armpit directly in the face. And at the present time, there's no law requiring all subway passengers to wear deodorant. If you're not skilled at holding your breath, you're screwed.
Train and bus routes can be tough to navigate even if you've lived in a city your whole life. But if you're just visiting, it's even worse. Hope you enjoy paying four bucks to accidentally go uptown, transfer to another train, and then wind up in Brooklyn at four in the morning. Because that's what's going to happen.
Some people on public transportation have a little more decency than to sleep while taking up a few extra seats. Instead, they'll fall asleep directly on top of you. Did you know that your shoulder makes for a pretty effective pillow? Well, you do now!
Sure, this skill might come in handy if the train is crowded and there are no seats. But someone should let him know about all those empty seats to his right. There's no way sitting like this is actually comfortable.
When you ride public transportation, you have to deal with people doing very strange things. Like this lady, who thinks the car is just an extension of her kitchen. It just goes to show that when you ride the subway, sooner or later you'll be driven to tears.
If you use public transportation, you might be sharing a ride with these guys, and nobody wants that. Creepy dolls are no fun to share a train with. Partially because they're probably murderers, but mostly because they're hogging some really good seats.
