Smushed, on the Subway

Subway, Winter 2015
Photo by myself on the subway.

I'm sure we're not alone here, but it's been sooooooo cold..... this past weekend, especially, we had very low temps and brisk winds.

Of course, since we walk everywhere, people totter down the sidewalks wearing big furry hoods, and ear flaps and scarves wrapped around their heads, and clunky boots. Then they get on the subway and take out their reading materials (or tablets or phones or whatnot) from their large bags or backpacks.

Suddenly, there is even less room than usual.

en effet j'ai vu sur internet qu'il a fait tres tres froid a New York, heureusement qu'il y a le metro pour se rechauffer ;)

This is also a typical scene in Toronto, Ontario. As a former transit driver I find that the worst offenders to less space are the ones that continue to wear a backpack when they board a train or bus.
Well at least you got no evil stares when you took the photo.

Only the people who push you inside are missing but by the look of it you don't need them at all.

As Andy said that is a common sight here too! And not pleasant to be in.
