Flipping through the channels a bit tonight and kept on stumbling upon the Michael Jackson special. God, the ego of that man (or whatever he is). Takes a lot of balls to through yourself a tribute to yourself, I must say. I don't even have the balls to throw a party for myself on my birthday and he's throwing a tribute to himself at Madison Square Garden and bringing out Liza Minelli to sing one of his songs. Liza Minelli, woo-hoo!
Hopped on MUNI tonight and ran into my least favorite type of MUNI rider- the Non-Mover. This is the person who despite all the available space around them, doesn't move at all. So, they just stand there, with plenty of room around them, but cause all the people behind them to be smooshed into each other. This particular guy had at least five feet between him and the next closest person. The Non Mover usually causes one of two types of actions. One possible action is to somehow scrunch past them, which can sometimes only be done with the skills and flexibility of 15 year old Romanian gymnasts and can sometimes cause a snippy reaction from said Non-Mover. The other reaction is the creation of some sort of MUNI dam. How many times have you been on a bus or seen one of the underground trains where the middle or end section is completely open and the people in that section not only have room to breathe, but could probably do a Warrior III pose if possible, while everyone not in that section is busy inhaling each other's hair?
I think my second least favorite person is the Late Riser. This is the person who realizes at the last moment that this stop is there's and then panics to get out in enough time. This means that in order to do it, they pretty much bang into everyone on their way out and shove everyone aside. Pay attention people! Then there's the people who sit on the aisle side of the seat with an open window seat by them, yet don't move towards the window seat to allow people to have the seat. Unfortunately, most of the people who do something like that are just punk-ass kids and nobody wants to mess around with punk ass kids so nobody calls them on it.
And I'm not even going into the whole old Chinese Lady thing. Let's just say some of them are viscious
