    17 Tweets That Prove Riding The Subway Is An Absolutely Wild Experience

    Buckle up, buttercups.

    1. There may be police around, but it's pretty much a lawless place:

    im literally insane i just went up to a cop and was like i dont have enough for the subway would u guys be mad if i crawled under and he just swiped me in

    2. And the first signs you see are basically like, "Buckle up, buttercup!":

    3. You will deal with crowds unlike anywhere elsewhere:

    Yo I just saw a woman lift her whole tit so a dude could get by her on a crowded subway car. NYC baby

    4. There will be morons among you, risking their lives:

    hey look it's the dumbest shit I've ever seen on the subway

    5. And people taking dramatic selfies without caring in the least who is watching:

    This woman giving it ALL to the selfie cam on the train is SENDING ME

    (In fairness, the results can be pretty great.)

    6. If you're in New York, you'll probably see a bunch of dogs in bags and no one will bat an eye:

    New York City Subway: You can't bring dogs unless they fit in a bag. Dog Owners:

    7. And you might even run into this pampered pooch:

    Saw the cutest thing on the train... in the midst of a heat wave in the subway this guy really brang a little fan for his dog 😭❤️❤️

    8. You'll come across giant bugs straight out of a Stephen King novel:

    Like most New Yorkers, I’m frightened by the gigantic praying mantis on the subway but also relieved that he didn’t yell “It’s showtime!”

    9. And smaller ones your fellow passengers will befriend:

    There was a cute bug on my train and instead of freaking out everyone in my subway car just took turns holding it. New York is the dumbest and I love it.

    10. You'll see your share of rats too (extra points if they're eating pizza):

    I’m so excited!! I saw my first New York rat in the subway!! 🐀

    11. Yep, the whole place can be a bit unsettling, tbh:

    12. But, while you might see those might also spot a celebrity:

    13. Maybe even Keanu Reeves!!!:

    14. And there are charming things on the subway, too, like these ventilation grates (look closely):

    Ventilation grill of Stockholm's new subway trains. Look closely.

    15. But make no mistake — there will be things that make you go WTF on the way in:

    No idea why this guy is doing this but he’s in the subway station on 23rd and 7th it anyone wants to see him

    16. WTF as you get on a car:

    When your subway car gets turned into the rainforest cafe. Welcome to NYC.

    17. And WTF while the car is in motion:

    Brought the pingpong table onto the subway 🤣 (via @marykarrlit)

    Basically, this is you every time you dare to take the subway:
