So I am paranoid about falling on people in the subway. As a result I always hold on/sit still under the train has come to a complete stop. I am sure this is a behavior that is easy to mock, but let me tell you a story that makes me feel slightly vindicated about my behavior. I was on the one train a few weeks ago. Most of the seats were full, but there was plenty of standing room. This woman rushed on, and did not hold on to anything before the train started to move. What happened? She fell! However, she did not just fall…she fell on a baby in a carriage. Luckily she appeared to have hit more carriage than baby, but the entire train car gasped! Not to mention the look of daggers that the mother was giving this woman. So please….hold on! You don’t want to fall on a baby!
