I've seen it all.
Living in New York City over the past nine months, I have literally seen it all -- especially when it comes to the good old subway. If you've ever road the subway whether you live in New York or another city, you know that more than often you're bound to see something out of the ordinary.
When it comes to the NYC subway system, your ride always comes with some sort of show. No television needed. Keep scrolling to see what kind of people you will more than likely cross paths with while traveling to your destination.
The Out Of Control Teens
It's usually a group of teenagers who come on the train extremely loud. They know they're loud and more than often don't really care. They usually come off as immature and ill mannered. The moment they start cursing and laughing hysterically is usually when you proceed to turn your music up all the way.
The Book Worm
There head is somewhere stuck between chapter one and chapter thirty of a book. They never once take their eyes off the page unless it's their stop to get off.
The 'Radio Raheem' Guy
If you've ever seen Do The Right Thing than you probably know Radio Raheem's character rather well. The Radio Raheem of the subway is just like the one in the movie, his music is always blasting -- and he doesn't care.
The Woman Full Of Vanity
This is usually a woman, but can very well be a man. You will usually catch them staring at their reflection on the train making sure they look their best. The icing on the cake is that they don't care who sees them doing so either.
The Phone Magnet
You can spot this person with their phone in their hand at all times, even when they lost service. You know we are in a wi-fi operated area when their fingers get to typing away. It goes down in their DM, apparently.
No matter what train you get on, you will always stumble across a panhandler. You usually can't tell a lie from the truth. Whether you believe their story or not is totally up to you. If you're gracious enough to spare some change, do so -- every little bit counts even if 95% of their story is fabricated.
The Sleepy Head
We've all fallen asleep on the train at least once in our lifetime, go ahead and admit it. This person is usually knocked all the way out and you will know they've had a long day [or night] if their mouth is wide open. Let's hope a mouse doesn't crawl in.
Have you ever road the subway before?
What kind of people did you encounter?
