"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

New York Minute

A large woman sits next to me on the train this morning. Plops down…what’s up with women who go to sit down and then practically fall with a thud into the seat?  I move over the best I can, now jammed between two people. Fair enough. But then the lady gets up after two stops and leaves the train.

Yo, you shouldn’t be allowed to sit, unless you are old, sick or hurt, if it is just for one or two stops. Sister gets the gas face.

Agreed. Not defending her, but she probably wasn't fit enough to stand, or to have the muscle control needed to sit down properly. Over 60 percent of Americans are overweight or obese. It's pathetic how fat our nation has become.

I'm always amazed at the spaces fat people on the train think they can get into.
