Emo commuter

From :

Genre of softcore punk music that integrates unenthusiastic melodramatic 17 year olds who dont smile, high pitched overwrought lyrics and inaudible guitar rifts with tight wool sweaters, tighter jeans, itchy scarfs (even in the summer), ripped chucks with favorite bands signature, black square rimmed glasses, and ebony greasy unwashed hair that is required to cover at least 3/5 ths of the face at an angle. (ANY SPELLING ERRORS = THEIRS, NOT MINE :-)

Dear 17-year old male reader (oh, there's bound to be at least one of you guys who fits that description):  if you must go for the whole emo-thing (and you really don't have to), pur-lease have regular manicures so I won't have to sit there and stare at your loooooong talons with chipped black nail varnish as you waft them about while you try to inhale one of 7-eleven's disgusting cheese sticks.

It's just... Well. Call me old-fashioned, but guys who insist on having long fingernails should really invest in quality nail varnish and apply a fresh coat regularly. That, or be forced to wear mittens.

Not the boy who sat across from me on
the train today. This dude's got shorter nails
and cleaner hair.  And no 7-eleven
cheese sticks (bet he wishes he did, though)

Ewwww! Hopefully he didn't smell of unwashed angst on top of it. ;( And, wait, you have 7-11 as well? I thought (in my narrow-mindedness) that is was just an American curse. Just goes to show you can learn things every day...

You know what, I dare say he did. But (fortunately) I didn't get a whiff of it. He did look as if he was about to burst into tears every time he took a nibble, though. So clearly a tortured little soul.

7-11 have been here for years actually. I'm not a huge fan
