Wow, has it been 3 months since my last post? Where did the time go?
Well, today I did something I've not done in 13+ years of riding BART. I actually fell on another passenger, and not just any passenger, a sleeping passenger! An older man who was deep asleep.
I was multi-tasking, with both hands on my phone, ferociously typing away an urgent work email. The train suddenly stopped and I couldn't hold myself upright. I fell left and knew I was going to land on this man's body, and already imagined what he would say when he wakes up to the impact.
All I could do is give my biggest smile after I said OH SHIT! He woke up, saw my smile and luckily, smiled back and said, it's OK. The surrounding passengers got a good laugh as I gathered myself to upright position.
In this case, really glad I'm female, not too heavy, and appeared to be a clean person. He took the impact pretty well.
