Wow...a little anger management??? That said if it clearly states no food or drink why do people do it???? What would these people do if someone lit up a smoke...have a hissy fit I'm sure as the smoke would bother them just as the smell of their greasy pizza or KFC would bother others but they don't care

He got fired. You just can't lose it like that. And right after that I was on the PATH at rush hour when some woman and her kid got on eating Italian ices, and of course the little girl's was dripping all over the floor. I guess the mother felt safe flaunting the rules knowing that the food Nazi PATH guy was gone.

It's not even so much the smell but the fact that these slobs leave their bags, cups and uneaten food behind on the seats or the floor.

Well then PATH needs to legally enforce the rules..what would happen if someone lit up a smoke??ejected from train??? Fine???? The same needs to apply to all rule infractions on the trains

Hehe...as a first-time PATH rider last Friday, I had broken the "NO FOOD" rule. Yet, I took my soda with me when I got off the PATH.

For the conductor to just loose his cool over food is a bit much. Smoking, yes. Food, really? He could have just gave the passenger a warning.

Nope rules are rules and if a smoker can't light up his Marlboro light then people need to finish eating/drinking before they get on the train or deposit in the nearest trash can.
Rules do not only apply to a select few
