my experience on the subway

A couple days ago I had a funny experience on the subway, so here it is:

It was a rainy day for new York. having to take a 40 minute subway trip every school day, I know that it means lots of people will be riding today. I get on the train, sure enough there are 50 people packed in like sardines. Every stop the train makes more people get on and nobody leaves. But I also get closer and closer to a seat. I get right up to the seats. And the good news is the next stop is 14 street, a very popular stop. And the lady sitting down was standing up. Eyes on the prize eyes on the prize I thought. I raced towards the seat and… an arm sticks in front of me. Noooooooooooo I though as I watch in horror as a lady sits in the seat. people rushing a rearranging around the train ends up squishing me between two people to the point that I can’t move. And of course I hear a voice screaming get out of the way. I tell the lady screaming that I cannot at that moment. But she doesn’t care so she pushes me into two other passengers. But perhaps the cherry on top was the shirt she was wearing, it said “NYC youth and community building”.
