Jeanine Gleaves, 24
Long Island, NY
I had a revelation of sorts during today’s commute from hell (its always a commute from hell, the LIRR isn’t known for it’s customer satisfaction), and its not a conspiracy, it’s just a fact.
I’m always. being. smooshed. or squished, squashed, mooshed, mangled, rearranged on a physical level, however you want to imagine or define it. And you might say, “Yeah, okay Jeanine, thats commuting, deal with it and get on with your life and move already!”, I would of course kindly agree with you, but then reply quite loudly “yes, this is singularly true, but I have noticed both personally and through observation that women are being squished I would say about 70% more than men”. Woah nelly, 70%, thats not 90% so no biggie right? WRONG! (I’m just caps-ing this because I like to get in your face a little) I take this damned train 2 times a day for a total of 3+ hours of my godforsaken workday. I pay about $285 a MONTH, and by the end of it the experience makes me overall miserable while I’m conscious for it (What? I like to sleep….A LOT)
