... and probably no deoderant either. Yuck. now you've really spoiled
my already not-so-great day.... :-(
Back when I first moved here some of the subway trains -- the red ones
supposedly from the London UK subway -- were not air conditioned, and on
days like today I learned, after getting stuck in one in an outside
section of track during a mechanical failure for over an hour during
"rush hour", to avoid them like the plague in summer months, and most
people did have deoderant on! :-) I'm glad I don't have to ride the
subway every day these days, even though the cars are all (barring
failures) air conditioned.
