Day 185: Like nails on a chalkboard

A tinny click and
Your fingernail clippings fall
To the subway floor

Call me old-fashioned, but I think that if a behavior is something you'd usually do in the privacy of your bathroom, it doesn't belong on the subway. This includes obvious culprits like eyebrow plucking, nose hair trimming, flossing, and shaving, and the lesser offenses of hair brushing and elaborate makeup application. I saw a woman clip her toenails once. I still haven't recovered.
