Anyone who was riding the A train last week knows that pain of MTA delays. Nabe blogger City Crab writes about a recent incident on a train with a "sick passenger".
City Crab: The Woman Who Had to Get to Work: This morning there were no tears, but there was the shaking. We had a sick passenger on the train — "sick passenger" is the term the MTA uses to describe anyone having a health issue while on the subway. It always bothered me to hear the word "sick" in this way — they would call a man having a heart attack a sick passenger, and I do not call that sick.
