The visual irony of BART snoozing
Our very own Laura of @caltraindiaries is no stranger to BART. And none of us are strangers to this. Laura sez:
I got on BART yesterday at Montgomery during rush hour, around 6:15. This gentleman was sleeping on three seats and effectively blocking seat #4. He was also snoring and appeared to not notice that 1) the train was full of people and 2) that the train was full of people because it was rush hour. I also especially liked that this happened under the “Help Us Keep BART Accessible” sign.
The visual irony is my favorite part. This rivals laptop guy lounging on BART and, rudeness aside, both are a little gross for them, right? These aren’t the non-absorbent seats, after all.
Send your favorite BART sightings to @bartdiaries, won’t you? Extra credit if it’s the aftermath of waking someone up.
BART seats are disgusting. Stained, smelly, and god knows who has been doing what on them.
could we deport this one?
Pictured here, as well, is a second pet-peeve of mine (including awake passengers, too!), which is people putting their feet up on the seats……gross! You have to assume every seat you’ve sat on had someone’s dirty shoes on it. I try not to sit on BART if possible, good thing I only commute a few stops…
3 seats, not 4. Unless there is a ghost hanging out by the window, I think that seat is free.
*Effectively* taking four seats. Technically three, yes, but we can perhaps agree that this is sucky human behavior.
Certainly! Keep up the good work, guys! Hope to have the pleasure to see you again (met you approx. a year ago in the Mission. You have to do it again, it was fun!)
Oh god. his head is *so close* to that nasty. he kind of deserves what he’ll come down with.
He was spotted in the transbay tube, too! http://instagram.com/p/YTrGy-DoMq/
My 5 year old would probably sit on him.
You have to ask yourself…Where is the BART Police? In the history I have been taking BART, I have only seen police on the train maybe 3 times. When they are on the train, its usually to go somewhere, not to patrol the cars to enforce policy!
