Hidden Behind Plexiglass

In musings, people watching on October 15, 2008 at 1:41 pm

A woman in a taxi’s backseat picked her nose today. I know because she hunted for squishy treasure while the cab was stopped at the crosswalk where I stood.

Why do passengers think car windows are one-way mirrors? They’re not. If you can see out, people can see in.

The misconception makes for hilarious people-watching, though. People rock out. They change their clothes. They do unmentionable things. They see how long they can flare their nostrils before their nose muscles reach exhaustion.

Best sighting? Report in comments.
