LIRR Commuter from Hell: Foot Man

Its Friday afternoon, and it was 91 degrees in the city today. Like everyone else in the city, I just want to go home and peel of my disgusting clothes. I get on the train -- aaahhh, air conditioning! -- and relax. The train is nearfly empty, we pullout and head East.

Then, at Jamaica, this cretin gets on. His working assumption was that we all wanted to see his gnarly, stanky, hot sweaty feet. FOUL!


How selfish -- and clueless -- of a human being to you have to be to behave this way?

When the conductor came by, I asked to be added to the Pedicure list!


If you are wondering, I made absolutely no effort to hide the camera phone . . . got as close as I was willing (no closer than 5 feet max) and snapped away!

Given how disgusting some of my fellow riders have been lately, I'm going to keep updating this series on a regular basis: LIRR Commuters from Hell.

I love your LIRR Commuters from Hell. I think I recognize your Foot Man from when I used to ride the Oyster Bay Line, this particular Commuter from Hell if it is the same one is also obnoxious in other more dangerous ways. He would get off the train at Roslyn Station and would cross the tracks while the barriers at the crossing were still down, often failing to check for an oncoming train on the citybound track. He's not the only one but he certainly is one of the most flagrant offenders. He's lucky he hasn't been killed by a train yet and might cause injuries to others on the train if the engineer has to slam on the brakes because of his repeat offenses. Luckily, I don't have to ride the LIRR anymore.
