I work in New York City. It's full of nutters. Go figure.

Wednesday June 1st.

One thing that always tickles me is when my train pulls into 34th St on a different platform than usual.

Normally the doors on both sides of the carriage open, but when it's the different platform, only one side opens. The conductor tells everyone as the train is pulling in, that this is the final stop and that the doors will open on ONE SIDE ONLY. ONE SIDE ONLY.

And when the doors open, there is always a cluster of I-Pod people, the little white plugs in their ears, gathered around the doors on the other side, waiting for them to open. In vain.

Heh.

And tourists, right? Because on the subway it's always the tourists' fault. And the homeless people.
