8 Typical Subway Riders

If you have ever been to New York City then you have experienced the subway. Riding the subway is key to making your way around the busy streets of New York City. If you take a step back and observe, these are some of the things you might see:

1. The Manspreader

We have all seen it but never quite knew what to call it. Manspreading is when someone stretches out their legs to take up multiple seats while sitting. Picture this, prime time, packed train, no room to stand and there is someone spreading themselves over more than one seat.

2. The Leaner

The leaner is someone who leans on the whole subway pole making it impossible for anyone else to hold on.

3. Subway Salon

The Subway Salon is someone who is trying to do their makeup or hair while also riding the subway! I don't know how they do it, but they do, and they always end up looking great!

4. The Squeezer

The opposite of Manspreading is the 'Squeezer'. The squeezer is the person who spots an inch of space on a bench and tries to wedge themselves in it. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't!

5. Door Blocker

Sometimes we just aren't in the mood to sit down or hold one of the subway poles, thats when the 'Door Blocker' comes in. Leaning against the door is another way of making sure you don't fall during your bumpy ride!

6. Biker

The 'Biker' is categorized as the person who is not getting on the train unless their bike is coming with them.

7. The Runner

The name 'Runner' is given to the person who runs through the train station to make the train and then bursts into the car with surprise that they actually made it.

8. Subway Performer

The subway performer is the most interesting of all the subway etiquettes, you never quite know what is going to happen next!

"New Girl" is one of the best sitcoms of all time. Honestly, it is so much fun to watch, so much fun to relate to, just all around a great show.

Not only is a great show, it has so many different great settings, obviously including the loft. If you live by Nick Miller quotes and desperately tried to learn how to play "True American," you need to buy these things because you are a true "New Girl" fan.

No matter what stigmas you held about therapy before this year, I'm sure 2020 has affirmed that we could ALL use a nice long therapy session. Between wildfires that took over an entire continent, a global health crisis, and what's sure to be one giant circus of an election in the United States, we need help and we need it now.

The fact of the matter is, therapy has been a helpful, valid resource long before the world decided to become one giant dumpster fire.
