New Yorkers have a love-hate relationship with the subway system. We love to hate it. From inexplicable delays to “showtime” break dancers to the mysterious scents of the Q train, riding the subway is rarely the best part of a New Yorker’s day — and all too often it’s the worst.
But that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t provide great material for some seriously amusing tweets.

You mean Tuesday?
Getting your face hit by closing subway doors doesn’t hurt that bad

Nothing hurts as bad as paying Manhattan rent.
Today’s smell on the subway.. Old Cat litter, and McDonald’s.

Sometimes it’s worse not knowing why the train is empty.
The J train is always either 3 minutes early or 10 minutes late. There is no in-between. #MTA you are ruining my life. I hate you.

A little hard to sympathize with someone who CHOSE to live off the J train.
If I’m allowed to choose the manner of my death, I want it to be at the hands of the #MTA so it will be delayed into immortality.

Gotta love loopholes! Thank, MTA!
Do not pull the emergency cord, if it’s not a life or death situation #mta

Did you just run a marathon? No, I just stood still near the pits of hell.
If your 4yo don’t suck your thumb on the #mta if your 24 please don’t do the same

Nope, nope, nope. Dealbreaker.
