What NOT to do on the NYC Subway- Buzzfeed

This is so dead-on about the most typical sucky things people do on the subway ( with one exception--standing up before you reach your stop is sometimes the only way to get going in the process of being able to get off a crowded car where you will be fighting like hell to get off at your stop-- saying " Excuse me," etc. over and over again).

It also does not mention all the beggars and their sing-song sob stories, the bible thumpers delivering religious rants, and the "singers" and"musicians" ( you will hear more of them at the station, of course...one in ten will be OK, the others will make you think the Death Penalty is not really such a bad idea at all for disturbing the peace...well, there is no peace in the subway, true)

Finally, the people who will fixedly stare at you on a less crowded train ( trick a friend at NYU taught me a millenium ago, -- just start casually picking your nose!)
