Crazy underground

Crazy underground
: I can’t top my colleague’s PATH train sighting: lesbian little people locked in passionate embrace on the train at midnight — twice. Still, I keep trying. Today’s crazy little bit of behavior: A lady comes on, methodically unfolds a black plastic bag, and lays it on a clean seat, with no compunctions about letting it overlap onto the legs of the men on either side of her, who do a very good job of acting as if this is not happening (I think I might have shouted, “Hey lady, what the hell do you think you’re doing?” But I’m a hothead). The next stop, she gets up, folds her bag, and heads off to Jersey City (where, if one wants to keep clean, one should consider wearing a whole-body plastic bag).

    Most New Yorkers on think this kind of stuff happens on the IRT, BMT and IND, and that PATH is just the boring little subway that nobody they know takes and comes in from someplace in New Jersey. It’s actually kind of nice to see the Port Authority’s trains have their own share of eccentrics….

    Ah, meekness…that should have been “full body condom”…

    Or personal lamination. (ouch!)
    I’ve seen behavior like this on the occasional trip through the Providence R.I. bus system too…
