5 Most Annoying Situations While Using NYC Subways
February 22, 2013 2 Comments
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.
….I’m not missing this train I gotta get to class!
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.
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.
I’d much rather this guy play La Bamba – Earns my dollar every time
Soy Capitan, soy Capitan!
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..
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.
So please don’t be that person – thanks in advance!
