Keep your hands to yourself

Have you ever been riding the subway, spied the emergency brake and had a passing urge to pull it and see what happened?

emergencybrakeI think we all have.

But then we stop and consider the resulting delays and fines and possible imprisonment, and we don’t.

‘Cause we smarter than that.

But not the joker on my train tonight.

No, he decided to give that ol’ brake a pull. So, now we all know what happens.

First, it definitely stops the train. And apparently the conductors can’t tell where on the train the brake was pulled. So, they have to walk down the line, car by car, and see where the incident occurred.  Which takes a long, long time.

Eventually, they opened a single door and let people file out of the train…so I was able to jump on another subway line and get home.

Did the culprit get his due?  I don’t know.  But in my mind…

He did. Oh yes, he did.
