Subway Selfishness (and Resulting Self-Awareness)


After a long, hard day of living the dream, I was shocked to see a buttoned-up Wall Street guy literally push a pregnant woman and her stroller baby out of the way to snag a coveted seat on the Union Square L train this evening.

Needless to say, I was pretty exhausted myself (after working a 16 hour day, I wonder if there can be some kind of Union for Bitches on a Budget) and had half-slumped half-collapsed into a corner seat all by my sweaty lonesome. However, to see someone be so careless and ruthless and selfish really made me mad.

To know me is to know that my weakest link is my temper. Once I get going, it’s hard for me to stop- especially when I see such heartbreaking selfishness. Instead I bit my tongue, while volunteering my seat and challenging myself to keep an eye out for people other than my cranky, overtired self when utilizing the MTA transit system.

And I’m challenging you all to do the same this week.
