Clueless People on the Subway..

The doors open, a lot of people are waiting to get on, and the people in the front of the line slowly make their way into the train and then stop within 1 foot of the door, like there is no one behind them. The people at the back are forced to either push their way through or rush at another door before it closes. The funny thing is, EVERYONE does this... Why??

Simply put, the people who are already on the train smell like stinky subway and therefore, we don't want to get near them!

We don't have a subway in winnipeg, but I see the same things on Winnipeg buses. if all the seats are full, people walk halfway down the aisle and stop dead. The result is massive congestion in the first half of the bus, and as more people board, those clogging the path look blissfully ignorant of their role, even as they are glared at from all sides. One could suppose that people are too busy trying to remember where their next transfer is to be aware, but my theory is that they enjoy blocking paths, it gives them a sense of power.

Clueless people are everywhere lately. People can be self absorbed and a few bad apples...well you know the saying. My favourite one recently was someone who stopped at the bottom of an escalator trying to decide where to go, then when I said excuse me and proceeded to bump into her (I can't stop the escalator from moving), I got a dirty look. My solution (as cheesy as it sounds): Kill them with kindness and manners and lets hope it rubs off at sometime. Hold the elevator doors open for people, let a car in front of you even when your late, and when a car lets you in wave to them, say thank you, and smile when people are nice or do something for you. And don't try to steal people's parking spots, when it is clear that they are waiting for a spot!

You are a much nicer person than I am!! on Oct 03, 2006 @ 04:00 pm

If some person did that to me I think I'd be too annoyed with them to be nice. I know it's a flaw, but I think you are right - it all boils down to self -centeredness. If I am safely off the escalator or on the subway, that is all that matters. Who cares about those behind me. I hate that mentality and I think those people need to be pulled aside and educated.

Don't forget about the people who take up three seats on the subway when it is crowded and there are people standing.
Don't forget about people who obnoxiously talk loudly into their cell phones - do they think people care about their lives that much? And the people who blast their Ipods - if someone sitting a few seats down from you can hear your music, that means it's too loud and you're going to go deaf!
I also hate people who leave their garbage/newspapers behind - there are garbage/recycling bins everywhere - USE THEM!
Regarding the issue with escalators, that has happened to me so many times, especially in the Eaton Centre - it should be common sense that it is NOT a good idea to stop right in front of a moving escalator with other people behind you. Maybe I just walk super fast or something, but I find that everyone, no matter where I go, walks SO slowly! Whether it's in the mall, on the street, or in the buildings at my school - if you want to walk at snail's pace, that is fine, but do not take up the whole hallway/sidewalk while doing so!
If everyone would just use common sense once in awhile, everything would be so much happier :)
