Giant Rat Crawls On Sleeping Subway Passenger To Remind You That NYC Is a Trash Island

I can’t even handle this a little bit.

Part of living in New York City means getting used to seeing rats everywhere. They’re always crawling around subway stations, but occasionally they hitch a ride on the actual train itself, just to make sure your nightmares are extra nightmarish.

Instagram user Anthony Lin captured one bold, giant rat crawling up the body of a sleeping passenger at 3am, just so we’d have something to put in our “Never Again” time capsule.

3AM on the 7 train. MTA subways come equipped with cuddly rats. #mta #goingyourway #nycsubway

First of all, who is this MFer who filmed this instead of helping this poor citizen?! If I ever catch you filming vermin on me instead of helping me fend off said vermin, I will kill you as soon as I’m done killing the rat.
