LIRR Commuter from Hell makes the NYT
Well, almost. The Wimps at the gray lady didn't post a link! What a buncha chickens.
Here's the story info:
As the train neared Hunterspoint Avenue, one commuter revealed his own approach to problems on the train: "If there's really bad behavior on the train, I simply take a cellphone photo and post it to my Web site."
He has nicknamed some offenders: the Baritone, Barefoot Guy [not to be confused with foot man] and Nail Polish Narcissist. "I realized I needed a healthier outlet than sending my blood pressure up by getting into an argument," he said.
[LIRR Commuter Council] Ms. Krebelj-Douglas was amused by his solution, and she sees humor as part of the Commuters Council's approach, too.
"Ideally, we'd like the L.I.R.R. to put up posters based on our research," she said. "Something clever that pokes fun at it, that doesn't feel like a lecture."
If Train Riders Don't Mind Their Manners, a Commuter Group Will
