If you live in a big city with a subway or train system, you will probably be able to relate to this.
Every morning when I'm headed to work, I try to get to the train at exactly the right moment because I know when the train will come along that has places to sit on it. I don't know why it works out that way, but it does. So I try to get on that train every day. The problem with said train is that it means that someone will eventually be sitting next to me and while you give up a certain amount (or all) of personal space to live in New York, you know you'd rather not be wedged between two other people.
But you are. Oh well right? Adele is singing in my ear, I'm on a roll playing Solitaire on my phone and who cares who I'm sitting next to.
Anybody else feel like that? No? Just me? Good to know.
