It's a crowded train, and you're packed in between two "man spreaders" with their knees miles apart.
Not the most comfortable feeling in the world.
The New York City Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) will soon take action against the seat-hogging people of the subway system, according to reports from AM New York.
In January, the MTA will unveil an entirely new public service campaign aimed at preserving space on its already packed trains.
That means leg-spreaders, backpack wearers and people who place grocery bags on the seat.
An MTA spokesman called the new slogan "something new, something fresh."
Although the campaign is a few months away, you can still take a moment to laugh at the problems that come with public transit.
New York City's seat-hogging problem has become such an epidemic, humor blogs like Men Taking Up Too Much Space On The Train have sprung into existence.
