Here's What The Worst Commute In New York City Looks Like

There's no better way to celebrate the anniversary of the New York City subway than listing the biggest struggles a commuter has to deal with every day.

Confusion prevailed among New York City subway riders when the long-awaited 60-cent fare took effect at the stroke of midnight in New York on June 27, 1980. As midnight came closer and closer, lines at token booths grew longer and longer, and people got more and more impatient waiting in lines for new smaller tokens. (AP Photo/Ron Frehm)

So here we go:

1 - The nail clipper



Please, all I'm waiting for is to have your nails fly on my face on the way to work.

2 - Manspreading



Just close your legs and make room for an extra human being that can totally fit next to you.

3 - Showtime!!!



When you hear that call, all you think of is "Please don't kick me in the face while you do your tricks"

4 - The "no one can see me"


Some people feel like they can be themselves on the subway, which is not always a good thing.

5 - The reluctant cyclist



Do you have a bike? Ride it! Don't take it on the subway. Most importantly, don't park it on it.

Every day, 4.5 million people take the subway in NYC and make their ways through these struggles. At least Pizza Rat is there to cheer us all up.
