You know who they are. Those Metro riders that drape themselves around the poles on the Metro as if they’re going to slide down it. Or the ones that lean their entire bodies against poles, staking out a claim on the entire pole real estate. Basically, in either situation, no other rider is able to get a hand in edgewise. If it’s off-peak hours, no big deal. But in the sardine-can of a metro car that is rush hour, it’s just not cool to have nothing to hold on to. Gotta share those poles!
