Extreme Germophobia Alert: Woman Showers On The Subway

For some, the New York City subway doubles as a shower. This video of a woman bathing on the train is one of those things that I wish I had never seen. I cannot express to you what kind of crazy germophobia this activates in me. I often fear that something unhygienic has gone on in my subway seat without my knowledge. And then I will sit there, blissfully ignorant as I contract scabies (or bed bugs, or lice … the list goes on). It’s easier to tell myself that this fear is irrational when I have no specific imagery to accompany it. But now, thanks to the magic of the iPhone, I do.
