PSA: Because You Stink

To the tiny Chinese woman on the train this morning: there is no earthly need for you to press and rub yourself against me when there is another pole right across the car with far more room than the one I'm hanging onto for dear life along with 5 other New Yorkers. If it had been absolutely necessary for you to hold the same pole as me (which it wasn't) there certainly was no need for you grab hold so far up the pole that the stench emanating from your armpit could be recognized halfway down the train. Really, people in Queens could smell you. Bravo on the "making your mark on the world" attitude, though. Kudos to you and your sweat stink. Good job. Be warned, there are several high school football teams who are going to be wanting their locker room smell back soon. You'll have to kindly remove it from your skin.

Eee uuuu wwww..... I would DIE if I had to put up with the human sewage that you do. First a fat lady falls on you, then a stinky chinese lady invades your personal space. You poor poor thing!

I hate that. I don't ride a train..but I ride the bus.

My favorite is when someone who smells like an armpit that's been used as an ashtray and toilet sits next to me. It's all I can do not to gag...and actually sometimes I do.


I'm thinking some kind of posters on the bus or in the train station about 'If you stink - Use the sink!' Or 'Before you ride, Try some Tide'.

Don't you love it when you see an empty car on a full train and you think, "Wow! I can sit down!" And then you get on and figure out that the reason why the car is empty is because someone stinks so bad that you want to gag.

Good times.

L. Britt's right. I do love it. Even with the stink and the getting sat on and the crazy job interviews. There's no better place in the world to have weird stuff happen to you than NYC. :)
