The good folks over at Tenderblog alerted us to this post on Going Underground, a London Tube blog. It’s about a group of riders in Boston who’ve banded together to raise public awareness of what they call “Man-Sitting,” or the practice of taking up more than your allotted seat on the train or bus. More power to ya, Bostonians!

This story came to our inbox from BART rider Nikki.
I am a daily BART rider. Generally my BART rides are uneventful. I have my bart buddy in the morning, usually my iPod and a good book. On the way home it is very much the same, except for last night. I hopped on the Fremont bound train at 5 o’clock on the dot. It was a full train and the only seat available was the handicapped seat next to the door. I sat down and figured if someone who needed it boarded I would move.

So I’m riding Bart from the Powell St. station down to Millbrae. As you could imagine it was pretty packed and standing room only. Out of the corner of my eye I catch a glimpse of quite possibly the most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen anywhere.
A woman had pulled her 3- or 4-year-old son’s pants down, pulled his little wee out, unscrewed the top of a soda bottle, stuck the little boys wee inside and then told him to pee.
The little boy stood there peeing inside of this soda bottle on a FULL train.
When the boy was done the woman put the cap back on the bottle, set it on the floor of the train, and then got off the train at the next stop.
Yes, she left the pee-filled bottle sitting on the floor.
If you’ve got a BART or Muni story you want to share, no matter what it’s about, send it us.
