PDA: Public Display of Affection
Sharing is Good
I can almost feel the nausea rising up already. Yesterday on the train home it was standing room only. I was wedged between some guy who thought my head was a great place to rest his paper and a young couple who couldn't keep their hands off each other.
At first it was kind of cute, but after 10 minutes of listening to their slurpy kissing noises and getting frequently knocked in the side by the over zealous boyfriend trying to grope his girl, i was getting extremely annoyed. I felt like screaming, they were practically fornicating in front of me. Packed in like battery chickens and breathing recycled oxygen, my hair started to go static, rubbing underneath the sports section of some giant's newspaper. It was too crammed to angle myself in another direction, so i was stuck, forced to watch these two animals suck face.
All this got me thinking about PDA, and what is really socially acceptable. It's all fine and dandy when you're the one causing the public love fest but have you ever stopped to think about how uncomfortable you make other people feel? Does it matter what they think? Well i know i'll be turning the volume down on my PDA in future, no one deserves to be subjected to that after a long day at work. Save it for the bedroom people!
