Okay. Maybe my monthly MetroCard got me on the subway for a little less than your full two dollar fare, but that still doesn't entitle you to take up a full row of seats with your shopping bags, umbrella and purse. When the train is full the rule is simple: one fare, one seat, one butt. I know the floors are dirty, but if that's something you're worried about then some of the money you put towards that Birkin bag should have gone to cab fare.
Until the MTA offers sleeper cars or first class service with extra wide cushioned seats, let's all play by the rules, shall we?
