Blogging Like I've Never Blogged Before

The MTA has taken it upon themselves to post rules in the subway. Things like "No spitting" and "Keep to the right on the stairs." This is the equivalent of posting a sign in a girls' eighth grade bathroom that reads, "No giggling about boys you like." I often spit while walking on the left side of the stairs.

I would like to add a rule to these signs that should actually be enforced. "No making out on the subway - that includes the platform and the trains. Once you swipe your Metrocard, all making out will be punishable with a severe fine."

I kind of understand it when it's late at night and people are drunk. Stuff like that tends to happen, but the other day it was 6:30 in the morning. No one wants to see two people who just woke up making out on a stinky ass commuter train. The air in the subway feels thick with germs. Not my first choice to make out with someone. Now the bathroom, well that's a completely different story.
