We’re sure you know that there are a million gross things about living in NYC, and normally, on a day-to-day basis, we just suck it up and deal with it because we live in the city that’s better than every other city in the world at just about everything else. Today, though, we don't feel like sucking it up -- we feel like complaining, so we're gonna do that instead. Here are 50 of the grossest everyday things in NYC:
1. Poop smeared on the subway station wall
How did that even get there?????
2. Mystery liquids that fall on your head
Do yourself a favor and just assume it’s air conditioner condensation.
3. Public spitting
It’s one thing if you take the care to make sure no one’s around, and then inconspicuously hock one, but when someone serves it up right in front of you, that’s just not ok.
4. Snow garbage
AKA when it snows so much that it becomes impossible for the garbage men to clear your building's garbage and it accumulates exponentially.
5. The film that seems to peel off your body during especially hot summers
You know, when you can rub your fingers together and it creates dark gunk.
6. The warm pee smell...
... that hits you at almost every moment in a warm summer month.
7. A particularly mountainous and leaking trash pile
Normal trash piles aren’t really worth getting worked up over.
8. Mysterious subway seat stains
You really want to sit but can't decide: is that a spilled Snapple, or just, y'know, blood?
9. Mysterious curly hairs on the subway seats
Depending on how tired you are, brushing it off the seat is enough. Just don’t think about it too much.
10. Soot, dust, and buildup...
... that gets stuck in your screen and window sill when you live near any major thoroughfare.
