Here's a tip: Don't kiss CTA train window

I’ve seen lots of gross personal behavior on the CTA, such as nail clipping and public urination. But here’s a new one.

Someone decided to kiss a train window. With fresh lipstick.

Hat tip / total ripoff from Claire Zulkey and her WBEZ blog. Thanks, Claire!

  • I would think that the health risk would be more to the person who kissed it.

  • In reply to jack:

    That's what I was trying to imply....

  • In reply to Kevin O’Neil:

    Jimmy Kimmel had something similar. For Vanentine's Day, he put Guillermo into a "kissing booth," which looked like Homer Simpson's nuclear rod booth, and then asked for volunteers to kiss Guillermo. Seeing a smudge when the second volunteer came up to the glass, Kimmel at least asked "they disinfected it between users?" The smudge was on Guillermo's side.

  • Nothing new.
    I remember when guys were greasing up their hair with some crap & every window was blurry from the grease.
    That was way more disgusting.

  • I wholehaeartedly support the sentiment and am happy we may have found something that all Chicagoans can agree on: don't kiss walls, partitions, poles, and (Heaven help you) floors on the CTA.

    Especially Wladziew Grabassinki. CTA has stanchions.

    BTW, Cousin Sal used Windex on the kissing booth window between people trying to get a remote kiss with Jessica Alba.
