The 37 Strangest People You Will Ever See On The Subway


I travel by the New York City subway system nearly every day. Most of my friends hate it, but I’m normally pretty quick to defend it. Yes, there are delays but guess what? The world is filled with uncertainty and these things happen. If you don’t like it, then you can get car. Oh, wait. You don’t want to do that because you know the subway is the best! 

That being said, there is one thing I cannot defend. Just the sheer number of weirdos who use the subway. I recognize this may be an unsolvable problem but I would at least like an attempt to be made. Or maybe I’m the biggest weirdo? 

1. Where can I get that bag?

Such an aggressive bag #subwaycreatures
