If anything has the potential to make you lose faith in humanity more than you have already, it's this video of a person clipping their toenails on the subway. Watching someone clip their toenails in any setting is pretty gross. But, on the subway? It's a wonder nobody pushed the emergency alarm like someone did last week to complain about a TTC passenger who smelled bad.
Please be advised that this sight cannot be unseen. It will be seared into your memory for eternity. It will haunt you as you lay awake in bed at night. Until now, you may have thought that the world was a kind and friendly place. But, no longer. Behold, the person you only thought existed in your worst nightmares:
The video, which was originally posted by Toronto-based Instagram account @ttceen, surfaced on Monday and has been reshared by multiple others since. It has gotten some comments - all of which are not in support of this person using a TTC subway seat as a pedicure chair.
Tragically, this isn't the first time that a person has clipped their nails on the subway. Last year, people were absolutely outraged by a video of a man giving his cuticles a trim on his subway commute. But, it pales in comparison to this recent video. At least the guy had his shoes and socks on.
The last few months have been rough for TTC riders, to say the least. Toronto commuters have endured every possible service suspension and delay on the city's transit system this year.
As of next Monday, April 1st, the TTC is charging transit riders 10 cents more per trip. And now that we're paying more, can something please be done to prevent commuters from getting hit in the eye by a wayward toenail? It's the least we deserve.
