5 Most Annoying Situations While Using NYC Subways

1. How many times do I need to swipe my card ?

This machine can make you swipe your card literally ten times before you are granted access into the amazing NYC underground. The problem is that everyone in NYC is scrambling to get places and rushing to catch trains. This machine can turn out to be your worst enemy on any given day.

2. Stop asking us for money – WE DON’T BELIEVE YOU!

I’ve been taking the same subway for 3 years straight and see the same lady with the same exact story almost every day. If you have two kids, who watches them everyday while you beg for money? You’re not fooling me with that phony picture. You lost your job 3 years ago, time to get another one.

Stop with the nonsense

Notice (above) how no one ever makes eye contact with the person begging. Next time just stare right into their eyes and give them nothing.


3. Go dance in a less congested place please – Once again, stop asking us for money

Isn’t it annoying getting on a congested subway after a long day of work or school to have these break dancers swinging around your subway car? I will not pay for you to disturb me so please don’t force your product on me. Let me listen to the Chili Peppers in peace.

4. Eating the world’s stinkiest foods on the subway

What’s more annoying – the smell of the food or the obnoxious chewing because their music is too loud?

Even Gumby thinks you’re annoying..

Bitch put that food away!

5. People that get on the train before letting people get off

So you escaped an annoying subway ride, and the train arrives at your stop. The train is congested and so is the platform where people await the train. The doors open, and as you try to get off, some really annoying middle-aged woman cuts you off in order to get on and get a seat. She bumps into you and makes you drop whatever was in your hand, or makes you bump someone else who also gets annoyed. This is one of the main unwritten rules of riding the subway: Let people off before you get on.

You can’t get on unless you let people off


So please don’t be that person – thanks in advance!

    The break dancers who intrude on subway riders are among the most obnoxious and annoying people! Every time I hear them yell, “It’s showtime!” I cringe and I’m always afraid that their gymnastics will cause them to kick me in the face. On a crowded train, it’s difficult to move away from them. When I’m on a subway train, I’m tired and and I don’t want to be bothered by loud noises and arms and legs flying all over the place. Hey break dancers — KEEP YOUR FEET OUT OF MY FACE! BETTER YET, STAY OUT OF MY FACE ALTOGETHER! If you want to do acrobatics, join a circus! Somersaults and flying feet don’t belong on crowded subway trains. Go someplace else to do your so-called dancing.

    The subway acrobatic dance is really annoying especially when they force you to watch or they will humiliate you that really violate your “right to remain silent”. It happened on Tuesday (6/4/2013) in a “E” train running between Jackson Heights station and Queensboro Plaza station around 1:30 pm.
