Public Bathing is Better Than Public Urination, I Suppose

Filed under fun times on the subway

I’ll admit that it was well after midnight when I spotted this sign in the Union Square train station, but even if my brain had been functioning at normal daytime levels, I’m pretty sure my first thought would’ve been the same.

I imagine there’s some sort of equipment behind the door that can’t get wet, but all I can picture is so many homeless people inexplicably bathing themselves outside of this particular door that the MTA had to put a sign up to discourage it.

    No sillys: they wash the subway. With smelly bleach. You have never seen them do this task?

    Things like this really screw with me. Now I have to know what it MEANS. Sigh. And Lord knows this is not the sort of information Google gives up easily.
