Sense Of Entitlement

NYC subway car. F-train. Rush hour. You're tired 'cause you stayed up to watch the Olympics and then didn't sleep very well after watching Nastia Liukin get robbed of the gold. Again.

You're getting on at Roosevelt Avenue in Queens and aren't departing until West 4th in The Village. All you want is to sit down and read your trashy magazine all the way into work. Maybe even take a quick nap.

But as soon as you get on you see a bunch of people standing up and this:

Ain't that some shit??

*smooches...glad that I got on at Parsons Blvd, when the seats were plentiful*
and I kept waiting for all the new passengers on the train to get on and react to his blatant disregard for the rules... I chuckled all the way to work this morning! Thank you, rude man, for easing me into my day :-D

LMAO... I've seen people take up 2 seats with their book bag but dude taking it to another level. 4 seats? that has to be an Olympic record.

JACK said...

LMAO @ olympic record. But in all of NYC, no one had the balls to say "Nigga, get your cracker ass up"

That fool is lucky I wasn't on that train. I would have sat right on his face. And I probably would have farted on it.

@super dave- this is all too common in the NYC; it's only the first time I was able to capture it, though

@jack- "nigga get your cracka ass up"???????? ME MEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@irene- OKAY?! you should have seen people with the stank face and heavy sighs and mumbles, but nobody tried to move him!

@qucifer- 5 is right!! not one person wanted to sit in that fifth seat because he kept tossing and turning like he was in bed! lol
