C'mon man,

not even flip flops? Anyone who'd walk around Sullivan Square station barefoot is de facto mentally unstable.

Starting to think it might be

Starting to think it might be them, the white guy with dreds is very familiar

Edit:
"We are investigating an Assault, possibly sexual in nature, and are seeking the public’s assistance in the ID of 3 persons of interest. The incident took place on MBTA property near the Sullivan Sq. T station but NOT in the subway station"

Actually is this related to the assault that occured by the river the other night? If so that's another tick that it could very well be them.

Or drive a car

because this is also the face of the public in public transportation.

Right

Because assholes in cars never attack other drivers or road users, either.

Its too hot and I'm too lazy to embellish that with a link for every word.

Own your hatred

Stop playing cute, it doesn't become you. You post some hateful or prejudiced thing, go ahead and own it.

Not cute. Very straightforward.

Moxie sarcastically stated he would not want to sit near the man and dog you pictured.

I then stated that is why some people choose to drive instead of taking public transportation. With public transportation people don't get to choose who else gets to be in the train with them unlike with their private vehicle.

That's all there is to it. No cuteness here. No hate. Its a very simple point people are trying to make much more of.

The comment you deleted about the cyclist not respecting when a woman gives him a red light to sexual advances, yes, that one was very cute but another situation. I own that. Its not the case here, however.

No.

You said that this was the "face" of public transportation. That's like taking some drunk driving asshole and saying that he is the "face" of people who drive. It is your right to be a foolish, ignorant, fearful jerk but Adam said--just own it.

I wrote "ALSO the face"

meaning not the one face, but one of the faces among the more washed and kempt, just as impaired and distracted drivers are out there in the mix too Sorry if that was misunderstood.

I'm sorry.

Mark has a point. The MBTA does have a lot of folks you might call 'characters'. Older people are afraid of them, some iPad engaged are clueless, some folks just sit there manspreading, staring ahead until they get too bad, then make eye contact.

I've seen it once or twice.

When once or twice

By on

is a serious enough situation, wouldn't it make you think twice about what way you choose to get to work (provided you have the choice?)

My girlfriend and I were on the Orange Line on a night out a few weeks ago and some guy wearing an extremely long (down to his knees) shirt, unzipped himself and started to go at it. I confronted him, and was, "dude, stop, just stop, what are you doing?"

He got crazy agitated, talked about "doing time" and how he "hasn't been out long enough," and was generally a punk ass MF when I called him out for, you know, playing with himself on a train *full* of people.

I'm not afraid to take the T, but I get that taking the T is not appealing to people because they might have a chance encounter with one of these generously characterized, "characters."

True but...

By on

I wouldn't say this is typical, right? I mean--after a lifetime riding the T I have dozens of stories but nothing more or less than I have about being out in public. The people you encounter while walking through the Common or on Centre Street are the same ones you see on the T. And I have plenty of driving stories too--the difference is that the wackos I occasionally meet on the T aren't doing anything life-threatening (well usually...) like drag-racing through traffic or applying mascara while driving.

All to say...if it were that bad, you might as well just stay inside, or in your basement in Arlington--know what I mean?

Of course it's not typical.

By on

But, the T does add the added bonus of actually being confined in close quarters with some lovely people.

Maybe the threat to my safety is more dire, but I'd rather someone be applying their make up next to me on the highway than someone doing unsavory things three feet away from me on the T.

To be clear, I do ride the T whenever it is more convenient, I just really don't get the pouncing on Markk in this case.

Huh? Dont know mark but think

Huh? Dont know mark but think you are all making a todo about nothing. The "face" comment is accurate- when you take the t you are taking the gamble that you will run into people like this (unkempt, unstable, violent, anti-social behavior -dog and no shoes, no shirt - all against t rules and offensive to fellow riders)

By on

Some people would rather drive than have a chance encounter with someone such as the disrespectful misfit pictured in this story. Swirly i know you are just agitating. I personally carry handi wipes and make sure not to touch door knobs and such with My bare hands as my granny taught me. Now this sort of thing is promoted as being health conscious and respectful to your fellow public (keep your germs to yourself type if thing). I take the t i am just mindful . And i steer clear if anyone from whom i get the willies - called self preservation.

Adam you are the one always siding with the thugs and protecting them but not letting people use that word. You are confused and constantly contradict yourself.

These upstarts need to be reminded every time about basic site decorum.

As for Markkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk, I just ignore every hairball he coughs up while substituting with Gary Numan.

I drive a car on MA roads, I ride the T, and I read

Universal Hub. There's a stubborn contingent of assholes on all of them, but they are mercifully a small fraction of the whole. I've learned to accept their presence -- even the ones that seem to take pride in being the Face of the Asshole Franchise -- avoid them where I can, and move on with my life, rather than saying, "Feh, I'm giving up on that."

I meant NOT ...

But I wouldn't aim a death wish at anything less than homicidal maniacs.

This is why I uber. It's actually cheaper to uber with a few friends and have them pitch in than to ride this filth factory for a couple bucks each.

"Filth factory" - you're probably just way too young to know.

I don't know about the filth factor. I definitely cringe at

the amount of trash left behind by riders on the MBTA, and hate the smell of the fast food that a few people choose to eat while riding public transportation. But I managed to get from the South End to a Cambridge restaurant and back last night on a combination of buses and subway cars while wearing white pants without getting besmirched, and nobody in range of my nose was horfing down McD's or cheap Chinese food.

Rude behavior is a much bigger problem than filth, but in my experience, the vast majority of T riders aren't more noticeably rude than the mean of the populace in any other sphere of public life in Boston. City living: it's not for everyone.
