Not: trying to prove you’ve got a large package, regardless of the validity of that claim, by sitting on the subway with your legs sprawled out so that no one can sit on either side of you.

Pet-peeved NYC women (and, we suppose, maybe those men capable of thinking about other people’s right to personal space) are taking on the classic subway crime against humanity known as “man-sitting” with a Facebook group and a cache of renegade stickers. The message, unlike those garbled track work announcements, is loud and clear: Stand clear of the closing doors, and close your legs while you’re at it. [Gothamist]
