Ew! This just happened to me on the way to work today so I thought it'd be a good time to discuss subway water.
Subway water is the water that leaks down from the streets and drips (or in some cases, pours) into the subway stations. I can only imagine what is in this water: urine, feces, disease, oil, and just plain nastiness! On very rainy days in NYC (such as today), one has to be on their guard against subway water. I've gotten drips of it on my head, on nice jackets where it left a rust colored drip, and yes, even in my eye! Oh, the horror!
Today I got a drip right on top of my head. I felt it wiggle down my part and cross over to my forehead. I immediately began slapping it away (and thus, beating myself in the head) in disgust.
Some guy walked by and said, "Subway water?"
"You know it," I replied.
"At least it ain't bird sh!t," he offered.
Happy Fvcking Tuesday!
