As the carless member of blogging.la, I can’t participate in discussions about traffic or bad driving, but I feel compelled to share that while riding on the red line tonight at approximately 5 p.m., I saw a man eating a plastic bag.
He was sitting in the center of the car, holding three plastic bags full of stuff and one empty one from the 99 Cents Store. As I watched, he took a bite of the empty bag and started chewing on the piece of plastic. I didn’t see if he swallowed it or not, because I was momentarily distracted by a woman walking past me, whose flip-flopped feet were covered entirely in gold glitter. When I looked back at the bag-eating man, he was gathering his possessions. He left the empty bag on the floor as he got off at the next stop.
