Why is it that every time I have to line up to buy a new monthly unlimited metrocard (which you swipe to get on the subway), I always manage to do it at a machine that's going to have a credit card reader malfunction when I'm three people away, after standing there for twenty minutes, thus requiring me to buy a $2 single-ride ticket and get a new card at a different machine on my way home?
Why is it that people don't understand the basic physical law that if you're blocking the subway door -- not only with your body but also taking up additional space by setting a huge, "I just bought a comforter at bed bath and beyond" type bag next to you -- no one can get on or off the friggin train?
On a related note, why is it that people feel they have any right to give dirty looks or sarcastically go "excuse me!" when people finally give up and shove by them?
Why is it that in a society where we can't go seven seconds without seeing a personal hygiene ad, so few people seem to have heard of deoderant, aftershave, perfume or cologne, and of those who have, a significant percentage seem to feel the need to bathe in them?
And last but not least, why is it that the people who are walking the slowest are always the ones who are walking in the middle of the sidewalk, weaving slightly, so as to completely prevent one from passing them without having to bump them out of the way?
Other than all that, and the fact that I have another cold, it's been a great morning!
