    Please don't be a tool. Take off your backpack when you get on the subway.

    This is the third straight day some idiot was wearing his backpack on the subway smacking people with it. (specifically me)

    It was shame for him too. Most of the time I try to be nice or not say anything, but he had to learned the hard way. I didn't say anything to the two guys the previous days, but I was extremely annoyed with the whole thing after the previous days and was feeling extremely aggressive. (listening the heavy playlist this morning probably didn't help ease any aggression either)

    Needless to say, I informed him that the train wasn't a hiking trail with a few four letter words to add color and emphasize how I felt about it.

    I have a bit of remorse about going about it the way I did. I haven't been that aggressive towards a complete stranger since I was in my mid twenties. Today there is really only one person that causes me to get that aggressive. (well, that I allow to get me that aggressive) It's this pushy jewish sales guy that works with me.

    Anyway, don't wear a damn backpack on the subway. If you do, you should be tased and then dragged off of the subway by your hair.

    lol, is the fact that he's jewish integral to why he makes you aggressive?

    As far as the subway, I have three words: **** the MTA.

    I got my motorcycle license and ride to work now, you'd be amazed how much better you feel in the morning if you can skip the subway on your commute. Even if all you can do is get a bicycle, I'd rather ride that to work than deal with the MTA and a bunch of miserable commuters at least 10 times a week.

    My commute is 1 1/2 hours each way. After my hour train ride into Manhattan, I'm not about to ride a bike several miles through rush hour to get to the very tip of Manhattan when the subway takes 20ish minutes on good days.

    As for him being Jewish and making me aggressive, it's not a blanket comment about Jewish people by any means. (My family has a Jewish background, though I am not Jewish) Although, I'm sure there are people that have met a few of the extremely pushy, bullheaded, penny pitchers that will know exactly what I'm talking about. They are ignorant about anyones feelings around them and try to pressure you into doing crap for them.

    Needless to say, I make his life hell and enjoy doing it.

    Much worse is sitting in an aisle seat while people are boarding an airplane. They brush you on the way by and batter you when putting their carry-on in the overhead compartment.

    I have more problems with the flight attendants bumping in to my shoulder/arm than the other passengers.

    That's why I always try to get on early and get a window seat near the front.

    You only have to worry about that if you stupidly keep your elbow hanging over the arm rest.
