While I fretted over the propriety of using a seat in a crowded G train to protect my paper grocery bag from a slightly rain-dappled floor, a very small man took up two seats by himself for reasons unknown.
You know how some New York subway trains have ass buckets in the seats to mark the dimensions available to a given rider? Well, this picayune fellow sat on the hump between them while others were forced to stand with nary a foot bucket to tell them where.
Maybe it made him feel larger and stronger.
Perhaps it made him feel like he had the wide ass of a powerful man.
