One morning last week, I was riding the train into Manhattan, and saw a woman slurping down a Tupperware container full of soupy, smelly oatmeal. She sat perched on the edge of her seat, shoveling glob after glob into her mouth. I couldn’t get off the train fast enough. It was gross! Surely you’ve seen worse.

For some reason, people are compelled to do incredibly gross things on public transit. I’ve seen far too many people clipping their nasty nails on the subway, and all those piles of vomit you have to sidestep on train platforms must have some kind of lurid backstory. If you’re commuting to work, experiencing something in that vein might ruin your day. Tell us about your worst experience below.
