Have a Cigar

I've probably ridden the MBTA daily since 1997. Since then I have seen my fair share of noteworthy people and incidents; including, but not limited to:
  • a shooting (at Fields Corner over some gold jewelry)
  • toe nail clipping
  • teeth flossing
  • head-butting
  • crazy ranting and raving
  • self-pleasuring
  • exposing oneself
  • vomiting

Today though, I saw someone openly smoking a cigar on the Red Line. This guy was different than the kids I've seen sneaking cigarettes on the platform, as they always look like they'll pee their pants if they get caught. This guy was actually enjoying a lit cigar on his morning commute and looked so comfortable and sane, that I think he'd have been apologetic if someone pointed out to him that it was prohibited to smoke on the T.
