The good folks here at Healthy Smart Green are all for public transportation. It's a great way to commute to work and saves money while helping the environment. What it might not save is your sanity. If you're a germophobe or someone who is easily grossed out, certain forms of public transportation might not be for you.
Before we go any further, I've got to warn you. This isn't your typical HSG article. You're probably going to be grossed out by some of the stuff you read about. Here they are, folks. I present you with 10 disgusting things you might see on public transportation:
10. Half-Naked People
Sadly, half-naked people are all too common an occurrence on subways and buses across the nation. There's even a group of people who take part in an annual "No Pants Ride" where commuters are encourage to ride the subway sans pants. I'd like to extend my deepest gratitude to the idiot who thought that one up. Then you've got the teenage and pre-teen girls who think they have something to show off and the parents who seemingly have no problem with their daughter dressing like a post-Disney Miley Cyrus.
9. Naked People
This is a family-friendly site, so I'm not going to post pictures of any of the literally thousands of naked people who have been photographed naked on the bus. Let's just say there are quite a few drunken or high men and women who hop onto public transportation and realize it's really hot in there before decided to strip naked and dance around for the whole world to see.
8. Fingernail Clippings
It's bad enough people clip their fingernails on public transportation. It's even worse that they pay no mind to where their nail clippings are flying and leave them all over the bus or train. We understand you're running late and didn't have time to clip those claws you call nails. In fact, it looks like they may not have been clipped for years. Why choose the subway as the venue for your first clipping in quite some time?
