Alcohol needs to be outlawed While I was sitting on the subway this afternoon, a drunk man came onboard and sat next to me. His mumbling and the stench of cheap alcohol were annoying, but tolerable. Even his trying to proposition me was...tolerable, since he wasn't violent. He was complaining he needed to go to Quincy, which was in the opposite direction. I told him that at the next stop, he could get out and get to the train going the other way. So when the train stopped, he got up and started to leave. Not fast enough, though, since he only managed to get his arm out the door before the doors closed, leaving his body inside the train and his arm outside. In spite of our frantic attempts to free him, his arm stayed outside as the train left the station. I got to make the intercom call to the engineer telling her that she'd left this guy partially outside of the train, which made her stop it in a tunnel. She came back, freed him, and made sure he was okay. Thank god there was a doctor or nurse or whatever she was also in the car to stay with him, eventually guiding him out of the train and getting him some help. Stupid drunk people added 30 minutes to my commute and more stress that I'm really not in the mood to deal with. Outlaw alcohol. I've never seen, btw, someone on pot do this.
