We have an important problem to tackle.
I was driving through parts of Waipahu over the weekend.
Concrete pillars were sprouting from the ground.
Rail is coming.
Whether you love or hate it – it brings an unexpected issue.
Read that word carefully.
It’s not what you first thought.
Follow me on this.
New York City is upset with guys on subways.
It’s running public service ads about guys being more dainty.
That’s a guy sitting with his legs too far apart.
It now can get you a ticket or some pissed off old lady hitting you with her bag.
The idea is to stop rude guys from taking up more than one seat and therefore making grumpy New Yorker’s even more grumpy.
If that’s possible.
I lived in New York City for about two years a long time ago.
Yeah, you don’t want to get one of them upset.
If you’ve ever ridden the subway in New York you know the whole thing will get anyone upset.
There’s naked people, break dancing people, singing people, panhandling people and lots of pervert-type people.
Guys have stuff that don’t let them keep their legs together.
To keep things delicate, we’re using a briefcase.
But you know.
Need I explain more?
Ask your mother.
And the size of these things can vary.
And we haven’t even got into fat guys yet.
New York doesn’t care.
Some guys have gotten tickets and some have gotten arrested.
This is our future on the $49-billion 5-mile rail.
You think manspreading is bad – wait until you see some 500-pound sumo-sized guy riding the $112-billion 3-mile rail.
