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.
