Good God, public transportation riders, how many times do we need to tell you? Quit hogging the entire pole!
Listen, I get it. Subways are gross. I deeply dislike touching the pole with my hand, and I wash my hands immediately upon entering my workplace or home. If the subway is entirely empty and no one else needs to hold onto that pole, then sure, lean your entire body against it. But on a crowded train, where all the seats are taken and everyone who’s standing needs to hold onto something so that they don’t fall over? DO NOT WRAP YOUR ENTIRE BODY AROUND THE POLE.
Other public transportation behaviors that need to die: Listening to your music without headphones. Man-sitting. Putting your giant bag on the seat next to you like THIS GUY:
Oh Guy I hated you so so much when I saw you doing that on the subway. SO SO MUCH. MOVE YOUR BAG. And put on some real shoes before you step on a needle.
