Chicago Transit: One disgusting slap in the face

So, you think you have a nasty commute? Last month, a transit rider in Chicago called police after a fellow passenger smacked her across the face with a sock full of poop. Screaming and covered in feces, the woman chased after her attacker, but he ended up escaping.

The woman told the Post-Tribune that the attack occurred without warning and described it as the “biggest degradation” she’d ever experienced, so bad that she would have preferred he’d hit her instead.

To make matters worse, the 21-year-old college student said she had a hard time finding anything to wipe her face with until paramedics arrived with towels.

Hmm… Kind of makes Muni seem not so bad. What do you think?
