Step 44 - How Do You See Yourself?
photo by http://www.wdkproductions.com/ I wonder what kind of picture of yourself do you have in your own mind? I’m not asking about the one you present to the world, but about the real ...

Walk with me, Part 4 – Nolita
Nolita is right next to Soho and I was thinking of putting these two walks together – and you could do that of course – but there are just too many things to explore in each neighborhood s...

Step 43: Have the Courage to Stand Alone
Photo by wdkproductions.com I heard this sentence: “Have the courage to stand alone”, spoken by Brene Brown in a conversation with Marie Forleo a few weeks ago, and it keeps ringing in ...

Walk with Me, Part 3 – Soho
  Soho is one of my favorite places in NY. And it’s not because of the fancy stores (I don’t have the desire to buy a Chanel bag, I want someone to give me that bag for free.) It's...

Step 42 – How do we not go crazy?
It’s very easy to go crazy in NY. It’s way too easy. That’s why at some point, you have to slow down and ask yourself how your mind is doing. There are a few different ways I ...

Step 41 – Close the Open Tabs
I recently noticed that everyone, including myself, says, “OMG, this month passed by so fast! Where did the time go?” And I feel that every year we say it more often. Have you noticed th...

The Bridges of Madison County - A Cautionary Tale
I’ve been coming back to old movies recently and watched one of my favorite movies of all time – “The Bridges of Madison County” with my favorite actress, Meryl Str...

Brooklyn vs. Manhattan
It’s funny how Manhattan and Brooklyn are different, even though they are only a river away. They are actually just one subway stop away (which is a few minutes’ distance). A lot of peop...

Women’s Surf Film Festival
I finally attended Women’s Surf Film Festival that took place at Rockaway Beach Surf Club on the last Friday and Saturday of July. I didn’t see all the movies (they’re mostly short...

Birthday
35 years ago, a miracle happened and I came into this world. And everything changed. I’m kidding. Nothing changed, except for the fact that the world got a bit confused. When I was a little ...

Yelp & Health
If you are running a restaurant business in NYC, you always fear of two things: Health Department and Yelp reviews. Health Department comes to a restaurant once a year and checks everything &ndash...

Racism Is Still Alive
I just had a chance to watch a new movie called “Crown Heights” and I must say it was a really painful screening for me. Had I watched it back in Poland, I would probably look at it as j...

10 Types of Most Annoying Subway People I See Every Day:

added: 2017-08-11 , category: Discover NY

1.  

     First of all, I think that a person who gets on a train and keeps their backpack on (when it’s crowded) should be slapped in the face right away. What’s wrong with you!? Don’t you see you’re taking extra space and people have your backpack pushed into their faces now?

2.       Those who decide to stand in place right after they cross the door – they get on a train and here they are (I thought this is only a Polish thing, but I guess it happens everywhere). They completely don’t think about a hundred of people behind them who would also love to get on the train. I have a question to that type of person: aren’t you afraid that someone will finally push you so hard that you will fall down on your face…? And btw, that person will be me.

3.       Those who get on a train before other people get off the train. Have some manners! How they’re suppose to get off if you push your ass forward, so they can’t even leave the train?! I’m always so tempted to grab their shirt and drag them back onto a platform. I haven’t done it… yet.

4.       Those who let their children do whatever they feel like. I believe that you’re tired and you just want a moment of peace, but why do we have to suffer, too? Sometimes those kids are everywhere and they scream like crazy, whereas their parents just sit and stare at their phones. That’s why I always carry my headphones with me.

5.       Those who talk loud on their phone. I really don’t care what’s going on in your life. Not even a bit. So please – keep your voice down.

6.       Drama queens. It’s either a conversation on a phone or a “traumatic” situation that this person was just involved in. And everyone on the train has to be a part of that. Again – I couldn’t care less, so stop it right there. And please – get a life.

7.       Those who think that eating curry chicken with all the extra sauces (or Popeye’s) on a subway is a great idea. I understand you’re hungry. I’m hungry, too. But could you please wait and eat it at home and grab some small non-fragrant bite in a meantime? The whole train starts smelling like a food truck and combining that with people’s smell it’s just not tasty at all.

8.       Those who watch videos on their phones and have it on a full blast. Why do you think I want to listen to that, too…? Come back to point 5.

9.       Those who notice an available seat and run like their lives depended on pushing other people along the way. I want to sit down, too, but could you please not act like a crazy person? And sometimes they will sit only for a few stops. My ride is one hour long, so calm the fuck down and let me take that seat.

10.   The frozen ones. Some people just get on a train and stay in one position, regardless of changing conditions on a train. It doesn’t matter that suddenly an extra 50 people got on a train – they would not move. It’s like they are in a different world that doesn’t include other passengers. They just think that this part of the floor that they took when they walked in belongs to them now.

There are times – like, every day – that I just want to shake those people and say: “Hey, wake up and come back to your senses!” (I’ll curse also, but let’s not talk about that). But except for that, I consider myself as an angel.
