Don’t be this guy. Ever.
It’s really too bad that BART nixed its whole “Who’s the biggest asshole on BART” contest, or whatever it was, because this guy could be a contender.
He was on a super-crowded SFO Airport-bound train, not only hogging both halves of the disabled seat but pretending to be asleep so nobody could oust him. How do I know he was pretending? He did finally relinquish half the seat when a woman asked him to, and she didn’t have to wake him up to get the job done.
Seriously, people. If you sit down in one of these seats, and you are not disabled, elderly, pregnant, etc., it is not yours to keep. It’s your responsibility to keep an eye out for the folks who DO need these seats, and to make sure you give it up if someone needier boards the train. In fact, it’s against the law NOT to.
Looks like I’m not the only one peeved about this.

That bag woulda become intimately familiar with my ass.
Er… well, not *that* intimate.
The fake sleeping is so common. I see it often when people are sitting on the outside seat and don’t want anybody sitting next to them. What is wrong with people?
If I see someone doing this in a full car I make it a point to elbow my way over to them and wake them up to ask for their extra seat. 🙂
