There is plenty to be said about the grievances of public transportation — Gawker’s list of the ten worst people on the subway from earlier this summer articulate them all. The obnoxious pole leaner? The person blocking an empty seat in a crowded car? Loud teenagers? They’ve got em.
But what about the dude who rests his elbow on you like you’re an arm rest, or who designates an empty seat for his briefcase, or trips you with his long extended legs stretched in disregard for other train patrons? I’ve spilled my iced coffee because of him!
It may be sexist to say that women aren’t train offenders as well, so we won’t. We will, however, kindly turn your attention towards a little Tumblr that focuses on all the men that the Gawker article didn’t.
“Men Taking Up Too Much Space On The Train” is meant purely for laughs. It does, however, document more than one real-estate dominating move that we’ve all witnessed at least once. Scroll through, enjoy, and hypothesize what’s up with their lack of spatial awareness.
