If you live in a big city, chances are, you rely mostly (or solely) on public transportation. Which also means you are fully aware of the fact that being on a public buss, subway, tram, and train is like stepping into a different world, with its own set of rules.
Where people have free rein to carry, eat, and generally just do whatever the hell they please, largely without consequence.
Life on public transportation can be beautiful. Poignant, artistic, and heartbreaking. It could also foul, scary, and just plain nasty. It spans the realm of all humanity. It is the great equalizer. You get it.

someone licks my arm.
panic. disgust. fear.
it’s a puppy in a bag.
warmth. jubilation. euphoria.

This woman was about to miss the train so she threw her bag to stop the doors from closing. Her bag is on the train. She is not.

Was going to give up my seat on the train for a woman with a baby but then I saw it was a cat and she can stand

A lady just walked off the bus with a stroller and the thing in it fell out and everyone screamed but it turned out to just be empty boxes

I just now remembered that yesterday morning, a dude lost his balance when the train lurched and tried to play it off by dancing for 2 min

There was a pigeon on the train, a guy chased it off and it just walked round to the previous door and got on again – so persistent
