Lookin’ for a seat

So we get to 71st an Continental at Forest Hills. A guy gets on he train. He looks to be either in his late twenties or thirties. He clearly wants to sit down and is annoyed there aren’t obvious seats available. Then he turns towards the direction of where I am sitting and actually guages to see if he can squeeze between people. But decides there wasn’t enough room. So he squats down in front of the doors and reads his Daily News disappointed that he has to resort to squatting. A few minutes later, he stands up annoyed or possibly tires from squatting and sees if there are any seats.

He’s not the only one without a seat. But then again, he’s the only one squatting.

This reminds me of the latest MTA news of controlled seating availabilty during rush hour. I winder which train lines they are planning to implement this.

So the guy eventually got his seat…next to me. He commented as he settled into the seat that it was like winning the lottery.

I don’t necessarily agree with his comment but I understanding his meaning.

This guy can’t sit still. He’s constantly moving around or adjusting himself in the seat. This guy is a dodge bag.
