Manners, again

In true passive-aggressive, curmudgeonly style, a follow-up to my “manners” rant of the other day…

Dear public transit riders,

I know it’s probably very comfortable for you to put your feet up on the seat across from you; however, if you were to take just a moment and think about the fact that by doing so you’re basically transferring the dirt, mud, and detritus from the soles of your shoes onto the clean clothing of a fellow traveller, you might reconsider.

Then again, you may well be one of those all-too-common selfish, self-absorbed individuals society keeps producing with unfailing regularity, in which case you might not reconsider after all.

But you can’t blame me for trying.

No love,
A fellow commuter
