Super Rat

Last night I was on subway (the 1 train going north), when I happened to glance over my shoulder...

And I saw a humongous rat run past me!

Yes, it was trapped in the car with us. People in the subway car started screaming. Someone jumped onto an empty seat and shrieked.

At the next stop, I got off the subway car with a bunch of other people, with the intention of switching to the next car right in front of us.

Unfortunately, there were so many of us with that same thought, that we all ended up in a jumbled mob on the platform. The subway car doors closed on us, and we were stranded on the platform! We had to wait for the next train.

We all laughed at the irony - the rat was enjoying a nearly-empty car on his trip to the Bronx.

What an enterprising rat! Instead of running along the tracks, he'd figured out the fastest way to get where he was going.
