I'm surrounded by assholes

I ride the bus to work.  I'm amazed on a daily basis at how completely oblivious people are.  If the seats fill up, people have to stand.  It's like there's a force field halfway down the aisle that people won't cross.  Almost every day, I see people stop at that point, and not move.  The entire back half of the aisle will be empty, and the people at the front will be falling out the door, and that jackass in the middle will not go to the end.  Sometimes, they'll even look around, assessing the situation, and then decide that they're in a good spot, and not move anyway.  Sometimes they'll move two steps down and stop again, satisfied that they've done their part to improve the world.

I swear to god, if I had a cattle prod, it would be used judiciously on these jackasses.

I think a cattle prod is too gracious a tool.

I will never cease to be amazed by Boston/Cambridge's public transit riders and their outright refusal to either A) Commit to a seat and not spend 20 minutes at the door in deep contemplation before completely entering the conveyance B) Situate themselves in a way that would actually help other riders or C) Do the bare minimum and then act put-upon when you elbow them out of the way. In New York, these people would be thrown about the bus/train and mugged on principle.
