metro monday vii: B is taking over

it's going to be a few weeks before i'm able to do a proper monday morning ... no complaining here. B has kindly stepped up again to offer today's gem.

There was this lady sitting next to me who was sneezing all over the place. I'm for sure going to get sick. It was pretty gross. Then she proceeded to blow her nose for about five straight minutes.

I chose this seat for a reason, because it looked as though sitting next to this woman would present the least amount of annoyance. Turns out I was wrong.

I was debating whether or not to move but ultimately I stayed put because I didn't want to draw attention to myself. ugh...

and this, my friends is why i have purell on my keychain. i definitely would have gotten up. i would have gotten up, looked at her with pursed lips, sighed, and put purell on my hands right then and there.

now if you'll all excuse me, i'm cleaning my closets. god i love days off. (or, god i'm weird.)

Coughing, sneezing passengers are such a problem during the winter commute. You might enjoy our podcast on public transportation, or our recent post on these out of control winter germs. Happy Holidays!
