Air guitar

An anonymous rider writes:
So I'm going to work early one morning (about 6:45am) and I get on the train at Davis. There are only about six or so other people in my car and I sit down. At the next stop (Porter Sq.), this huge guy gets on with sunglasses and a walkman turned up REAL loud. It was so loud that I knew he was listening to "Jump" by Van Halen. Yikes.

Anyway, because there are only a few people in the car, there were about 10 seats that separated each person sitting in the train. Needless to say, there were plently of open spaces to stand without violating anyone's "comfort zone." So this big guy walks onto the train and stands DIRECTLY in front of me so that both of my knees were literally touching his. Creepy. It gets the train starts to pull away, this guy starts making some strange hand movements. I look up and realize that he is looking at himself in the reflection of the window and playing the air guitar to "Jump!" This went on for a good five to ten minutes. I had to laugh at the fact that there was some guy standing right in front of me with sunglasses and blatently playing the air guitar in public. Needless to say, I moved seats.
