I boarded a train recently that was not too packed, but had a decent amount of people on it. The first thing I saw before the doors even opened was an entire row of seemingly empty seats. This was pretty exciting for me because something that i always do before the train doors open is scope out any available seats, mentally note the distance i am to each one as well as how many people might challenge me to those seats, and what said people's chances of beating me are. A complete row of seats eases the pressure of subway seat hunting.
The doors open, and I immediately head to the empty row. I am caught off guard by a man sleeping on all that empty space (approximately five seats). I quickly scan the area (i had not prepared a plan b, since plans a through e were that "empty row" of seats) , spot an empty seat, and take it as my own.
As we're riding, I see the amount of people that have to stand now because sleepy sebastian is resting his head here. They seem annoyed. I start getting annoyed for them, because if it weren't for my fine-tuned seat scoring skillz, i too would be standing. but then i thought of poor Esmin Green who died and was ignored. (:() So then i watched sleepy sebastian long enough to make sure he was breathing, which he was, and then continued to be annoyed at him on behalf of other people.
