Well that's fine, but show some consideration for others. "I'm also tired as hell.....

...and would like to get home to my wife. Because my long-winded boss tied us all up at the end of day to blather about some bullshit, I'm 20 minutes later getting to the subway, which puts me down 25 to get to the train, and if I miss the 5:30, I have to wait until 6:30 for the next one. Of course, because the weather's shit today, there are delays which means I already have to fight to get a standing spot for a train without provisions for it (i.e., few hand holds, which makes keeping your balance tricky at 80+ mph). I'm going to be assholes-to-elbows with a bunch of cranky fucks for the next hour in any case, I'll just be an hour later getting home with mounting people density the entire time.

I am glad you've visited the city, dear tourist, but I have to fucking work here, and my next date is not dinner 'oh gosh whenever' before a 9p showing of Hamilton or Wicked whatever the fuck.

I don't have to time to go into a treatise on this every time, so if I say excuse me, or stand to the right... it's not personal. But if you need propriety, then pretty please, with a cherry on top, could you just stand on the fucking right like a person with some sense of situational awareness?"

This is what commuting felt like for me in DC, and I know a lot of others. The butthurt from absolutely clueless tourists however, who seem to think that cities are just big open air malls, is really unbelievable. Christ, between this and standing directly in front of opening subway/airport minirail doors after the thing comes to a stop, you really wonder how there aren't more acts of violence.

“Don’t overplay. Don’t overplay. Less is more. It will always be: less is more. Nobody is ever going to remember all those fancy solos - even the guys that play them, most of them won’t remember - so play some licks that people can walk away humming, that people can identify with." --Steve Cropper
