1/4/12 God helps fools and drunks, so don't expect a lot of sympathy

The trains are inexplicably packed, this morning, and I have to remind myself to keep to my rule: no pushing anyone, bigger, smaller, or the same size as you.

Don't push bigger people because they can crush you, smaller people because it's just not nice, and people the same size because you never know who's carrying a knife.

The overcrowded train vomits its load of commuters into the scrum of the already at-capacity platform, and one man hollers to the rest of us, slurring his words, asking how to get to the E train.

When no one answers (mostly because a. he's drunk and b. the E train doesn't come to this station) he berates us, yelling, "Aw, nobody can help me?"
