^^^ I don't know about that one, Fred314X. So many people seem to be on the edge these days. How would you even find a respectful way to tell someone to cut it out? I'm thinking late at night after a long day at work and you just want some quiet. On a train? As if... lol

You all seem schooled on the etiquette of riding on the subway. How does one go about riding if they have a wheeled instrument (bass) with them.

I know folks ride with their bass, but what is the best way to do it?

I was trying to figure how to get a carpet home on the subway... I gave up and paid the delivery charge. The carpet wouuld have been about the size of a bass, only a LOT heavier.

How about a HARP?

My daughters friend is a harpist and compared to the bass that thing is a giant. The bass has a wheel and really isn't that heavy.

Here's a potentially silly question that just occurred to me: why should there be stress because the subway car is crowded? I can understand stress if the train isn't moving--but just because there are a lot of people packed into a particular car is not necessarily a stressful situation. Unless you have claustrophobia, in which case you shouldn't have gotten on the train in the first place.

I find two things stressful:
1. being off balance and supported only on one foot and the crush of those around me. It hurts my back to stand crooked.
2. I don't too much mind getting pawed (as llong as my wallet is safe) but I am always on the lookout for some oversensitive woman to take offense because my crotch is wedged against her behind or my shoulder pressed into her bosom.

Alright, maybe 3: In winter with everyone wearing parkas and packed like sardines, you are courting heat-stroke if the crowded condition persists for too long.

But in truth, I have never seen any subway as crowded as the PATH train after one on NYC's many "events." A real joy is St. Paddy's day, crammed like sardines and invariably somebody tosses his cookies.
