Hey Dumb Fuck, Maybe That's Not a Good Idea

POST #    1940

So last night, I'm waiting for the L train at 1st Avenue at around 12:15 and across the way, this douchebag decides to get off the 8th Avenue bound platform to switch sides. At first I thought, "Oh, he's sitting down. I've always wanted to do that." I'm not quite sure why I want to sit on the dirty platform, but it seems like it would be fun.

Anyway, so before getting on the tracks, the guy takes a quick look to see if there's a subway coming. I suppose he feels that there isn't one, but there actually was. A Brooklyn bound train was about 200 feet from the station. The jackass proceeds to cross the tracks, not looking as he crosses onto my side of the station, and climbs onto the platform and nonchalantly walks away.

I think everyone was kind of shocked as to what he did and I think there was only one person that said something. It was just crazy. The train was so close. Once it finally pulled into the station, the subway conductor stopped and asked people if someone just crossed the tracks. He was told that the douchbag/jackass already got back onto the platform and it was okay to proceed.

I don't know what was running through that guy's mind. Even if he was on the wrong side of the stop, without money on his Metrocard, or in his wallet, he could have asked the token clerk to let him back in. Just not worth risking your life over, I would think.

Same dumb fuck or are there many?.....

We once saw a guy who accidentally left his pool stick (billiards stick, cue, whatever it should be called) on the seats on the opposite platform. He asked someone to throw it over since he didn't want to miss the next train. Well, some guy throws it for him but it lands on the tracks. So this dumb fuck, with a train light visibly approaching, jumps down to retrieve it. A stick! Not a kitten or a baby or anything, a stick. Everyone just watched in horror. Fortunately, or unfortunately for the sake of the global gene pool, he was ok. Not to get too Darwinian or anything, but people who do this kind of stuff die for a reason.

That is the kind of thing that would have made me seriously hyperventilate. I wonder if the conductor put out an APB for this idiot.
