Could you imagine the guy sitting across the aisle from you suddenly lathering up and dragging a razor across his chin? Or, how about that other guy sitting in the middle seat pulling out a tube of jell and waxing up his hair (or hair piece, for that matter)? Talk about a double standard. Guys just don’t pull that crap in public.
Next to the loudmouths (of both sexes) who engage in cellphone conversations and make sure you and everyone else on the train know the most minute details of their weekend plans, my vote for most boorish train behavior goes to the make-up mavens. Ladies: give us a break and put it on before you get on. It’s not good for your image and just makes an already bogus NJ Transit experience that much worse.
