Won't You NOT Be My Neighbor

(Think Mr. Rogers) or (Think Ghost...GET OFF MY TRAIN)

OK this is way too typical of a morning rush hour commute on the NYC subway. And this is what I was subjected to while taking the train at 8:30am this morning. I talked with my mother about this tonight. She grew up in Brooklyn and said this has been going on forever. She told me to tune it out.

It's so common that I ask you to notice how no one is paying attention and the person sitting directly next to me just keeps reading her paper, flip flip flip.

I kept thinking it was a good thing Drowsey wasn't on the train with us. She might have actually thrown her paper at him and told him that HE WAS GOING TO HELL!

Yes mommy, I will tune him out NEXT time. This time I decided to take video of the perpetrator and force all my blog readers to suffer along with me ;-)
