How not to be a seat hog: Sit on your bag

Here's a bad photo showing a good deed. But you get the idea. This CTA Red Line rider chooses to sit on his bag rather than hog the seat next to him. Nice!

  • Of course, whose Sun-Times is it?

  • Actually, I recall that the Sun-Times was already on the seat when he sat down.

  • He could have put the bag on his lap, or on the floor between his feet. Maybe he sat on it to make it harder for thieves to snatch it.

  • I agree with in60657 about the newspapers, not to mention that at the end of routes, the operators are always pleading people to take their newspapers, garbage, etc. off the train. This is especially true on the Purple Line to Howard.

    As for the bags, that's something I've never seen before. But it is a good alternative to putting it on the seat.

  • The announcement says to "remember" to take your newspapers and other reading materials. But I purposely leave perfectly good newspaper sections or magazines for someone else when I'm done with them, believing it's better for more people to be able to enjoy the content before the paper is recycled. But I usually don't leave them flat on the seat--I fold them if necessary, and tuck them in that soon-to-be-nonexistent space between the forward-facing seat and the wall.
