Yes indeed.
A crazy annoying person on the subway wil annoy you. The same crazed annoying person in an automobile might CRUSH you.

On the subject of pole leaners...

I remember one afternoon on the 7 train, there were a couple of high school girls on their way home. One began swinging around the pole, and said to her friend, "This is from my stripping routine." It was impossible to tell if she was serious or not--but it didn't look like that was the first time she made those movements.

Default I got another.

A few months ago, A guy came on the subway (Q line) and was panhandling. He had brand new sneakers and what looked like a new iphone. After no one gave, he proceeded to say "It's Friday, I KNOW some of you people got paid today" and cursed out 2 riders on the way out the door.

Nerve beyond nerve. we were all puzzled.

I am sure she has ridden other types of "poles."

What a jerk. Even if he weren't obviously scamming, he has some nerve to assume that part of their paychecks belong to him.

I know this is off-topic, but I had the following experience(s) when I was living in the Third World country, where I was born and grew up.

I boarded the bus with my mother. She wanted to sit in a particular location, but I said, let's move farther back, because that area is too hot due to the sunshine. Where I would have sat, someone else sat.

In the middle of the journey, as the bus temporarily halted, a guy sitting behind where I would have sat suddenly stood up and, OMG--vomited right on the head of the hapless person.

I saw everything and can still vividly remember the ooze and the bits of rice and viands on the victim's head. The vomiter then ran out of the bus. To his credit, I think he was actually trying to get out in a hurry, but the, ahem, necessity overtook him. The victim shouted and shook his fist at the fleeing vomiter.

The bus driver had to pull into a garage and wash off the mess.

Several months later, my mother and I again boarded a bus. It was full, but there was a vacant area in the back, so we hurried there. Why was the seat vacant? Because there was vomit all over the seat.

Since we're on the topic of train stories...

One time I boarded the R train and there were TWO homeless guys on the train--one on each side! I smelled some bad urine on one side so I started walking the other way, only to encounter some bad BO smell.

There was a homeless guy on the 4 train that smelled so bad that the entire train car was empty during morning rush hours. Can you imagine a 4 train car empty during rush hour? He smelled that bad and I had to get off, even though I was at the opposite end of the car.

There's this "homeless" guy on the R train that always panhandles with a fake limp and slurred speech. All he does is untuck his shirts to make himself look messy. Everything is brand new and his sneakers cost more than mine. I'm surprised people give him money at all!

Finally, one time I was sleeping on the train when I'm awoken to "OMG THIS MAN HAS HIS PENIS OUT!" I open my eyes only to see the guy's junk directly across from me. He was apparently masturbating by the doors next to a female sitting adjacent to it. What a horrible image to see when you first wake up.

A couple years ago the cops actually caught one of those public masturbators because the girl who who was the imaginary object of the spanking took a picture of him with her phone. The perv's face was all over the news the next day.

I just LOVE the snotty ones. The ones who follow you hollering are also a joy.

And they wonder why the homeless are sometimes beaten.
