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!
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!
