  • This morning on the train, a "click............click.............click" caught my attention. I looked over, and across from me a woman was using a huge toenail clipper to trim her fingernails. She would clip a few onto her backpack then brush them onto the floor.

    I didn't know whether to vomit or punch her in the head.

    F. U. train nailclipping lady.

  • Not commuting but the receptionist at The Brooklyn Hospital emergency room. As I was bleeding from the face asking to check a broken nose, he clipped his fingernails onto the floor/desk.


    I turned around and left, never checked the nose.

  • Saw some guy clipping his fingernails on the train a couple of weeks ago. Who the Fuck thinks that is an appropriate place for nail clipping? I think I'm going to keep some floss in my bag and the next person that decides the subway is their bathroom will get to enjoy me flossing while standing over them. I just wonder if they'll get the point or just think my behavior is perfectly normal.
    The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.

  • The nailclipping sound on the subway is worse than...nevermind.
    I have seen someone do it sitting in the middle seat on a crowded subway (A going home) and the nailclip flew onto the person sitting next to him.

  • I believe the ferry has a strict no flossing, no nail clipping, no tongue cleaning and no snot rocket policy in place. Another reason to love the ferry.

  • I think the woman next to me on last night's QM17 bus ride home may have farted.
    It was her or someone in front of me, but someone floated an air biscut that lingered, son!
    Good thing she held it in until Howard Beach. Peewwww.
    So heavy you can't even pick it up.

    Eh!  Call us when you see a dude walking down the street clipping his toenails.  This is NY.  Fingernail clipping is like a Chicago level thing.

  • When I was in law school, I worked late nights at FoxSports.com writing headlines for the late, west coast ball game wrap ups. Pretty depressing job, but it paid pretty well. One night on my way home, I saw a guy beating off on a Queens bound N train. Seriously. There was a woman sitting across from me and this guy was all the way down the other end of the car. We were the only 3 people in that car. I look down at one point and sure as I'm born, there he is, whacking away like its his job. I look at the woman, she at me (raised eyebrow), and I say "What the Fuck, man?!?!" He growled at me like a cornered animal, which, in a way, I guess he was. We went through to the next car and I told the conductor there was a guy spanking it two cars down. He looked like I'd just told there was gum on the floor or something.
