My commute to work was interesting this morning.
My stop is near the beginning of the line so I always get a seat. Two stops later an old man with a cane gets on the train and sits down next to me. I feel something cold touching me leg. I look down and notice that the man's cane is leaning up against my leg. Well this is awkward.
I'm afraid to say something. He's an old man and maybe he didn't realize that he had placed his cane on my leg. Then he starts coughing and wheezing. Now I really can't do anything. The man can barely breathe. I can't ask him if I can move his cane off of my leg now!
I sit there hoping that his stop is before mine but of course it's not. Once the train pulls into my stop I gently move his cane so it's resting on the seat and not on me.
He doesn't even notice.
