5. STEPPING ON FIRST & THEN BLOCKING THE DOOR
Yes, I’m one of those people that likes to lean up against the door, but that’s why I tend to let people go before me and I board last. However, there are those people that push past you and as soon as they step on the train they just stop and stand right there. WTF! You know people are right behind you!
6. RUSHING FOR A SEAT… AND THEN GETTING OFF NEXT STOP
WTH! I hate those folks that bogard their way past you and the people actually getting off the train just so they can stand right in front of the opening doors to grab an empty seat. It was Austrian physicist Wolfgang Pauli who came up with the Pauli Exclusion Principle, which basically says that no two solid objects can occupy the same space at the exact same time. With that said, the people getting off need to get off first so you can get on. What makes it even worse is when the seat fiend gets off on the next stop. I secretly get a kick out of seeing them not get a seat.
7. SPREADING LEGS OUT TOO WIDE OR PUTTING BAGS/FEET UP
Men are the guiltiest of spreading their legs out or putting their feet up on the pole or in the aisle, but ladies that put their precious bags on the seats are just as wrong. It’s one thing if the train is empty, but if it’s the middle of rush hour and you’re hogging up too much space you can actually get a ticket.
This is like the ultimate form of disrespect to the other passengers—especially to kids and little people, who are directly in the line of fire—and it becomes a mass game of who-did-it?
13. LEANING ON THE POLE WHEN IT’S CROWDED
I’ve seen this happen more times than I’d care to admit, but someone decides that he/she is tired and is going to lean on the pole comfortably no matter how crowded the train is. The sad part is when people try to grab on to the pole and subtly poke them with their rings, the pole leaner has a nerve to get mad like they not only paid for the pole but also installed and polished it.
