I often like to sleep on the metro, but never sleep if I am on the outside seat. This Friday, I fell asleep on the inside and a few stations in a dude came and sat next to me. Before I knew it, he had fallen asleep on me. Ew.
I was obviously not able to fall back asleep. When my station came up, he was eager to express his thanks for holding his head up, despite my reluctance to do so. He asked several other questions with minimal response on my behalf. By the time he was getting off at the same stop, I waited until the final second to depart the train.
I was thoroughly disgusted to have touched my bare legs to this man for twenty minutes.
