Sometimes, our fellow CTA passengers are just plain annoying. Here’s what they do to bug us.
Wide-spread legs man: He takes up almost two seats because he needs so much room to air out his junk. Just close your legs, man!
Screaming cellers: It’s bad enough they are talking on their phones on the L. What makes it worse is how loud they talk. We don’t need to know about how much of a jerk your boyfriend is. Shut up!
Bruising backpacks: When you’re backpack is that big, you take up the space of two people. So stop hitting me with it.
Super strollers: Sorry, but I don’t think you’re 3-year-old needs to be in a BMW-sized stroller. So move it out of the aisle.
Ignorant eaters: First, your food smells in this confined space. Second, you left you garbage there on the seat. Stop, you ignoramus!
Flagrant littering: See previously. That empty McDonald’s bag stinks and makes the ride much less pleasant.
Music and video without earbuds: Sure that YouTube movie is hilarious. But it’s just more noise to use.. Put on your earbuds
Standing in the doorway: There are other people who are trying to leave the train, while you stand in the doorway. Move!
Sick people: OK, so you you can’t afford to stay home from school or work. But stop sneezing all over other passengers.
