Wait, let me narrow that down to the idiot blocking the escalators at the train station:
IMHO, I don't feel that in front of the holy-crap-it's-actually-working! escalator during the morning rush hour commute is really the best place to stand and read your free newspaper.
AND, let's just say that you do find this to be acceptable behavior, you really shouldn't yell at people who bump into you or make snarky comments because YOU ARE IN THE FUCKING WAY! and quite frankly, I'm shocked some of these hard ass New Yorkers didn't just "help" you get on the escalator...
that is my public service announcement for the day. you may all go about your business, but if you're at South Ferry, watch out for the idiot blocking the escalators!
