TRAINJOTTING TURNS 5: Greed

Each day this week, to commemorate our fifth birthday, Trainjotting is publishing memorable posts from the past, grouped under a specific Seven Deadly Sin. Today’s sin is Greed.

So widespread is the practice of New Yorkers behaving badly on public transportation that we have two separate user-generated websites dedicated to their transportation transgressions, a.k.a. “trainsgressions”. (And so widespread are camera-equipped smartphones that we now have armies of citizens willing and able to snap pics of these offenders.)

Here’s a peek at SeatHogs.com, which, just as it sounds, offers photos of people occupying multiple seats on the train, as snapped by the “pigparazzi” out there.

And here’s TrainPigs.com for your viewing pleasure, which shows people indulging in New York’s fine selection of takeout grub as they sit on trains.
