When you step into the subway, it’s like walking into the Twilight Zone. You never know what to expect, but you can be sure you’ll run into something truly bizarre. The subway always seems to attract the weird and the unexplained, which often makes the commute to and from work or school a lot more interesting. So, in places like New York, Shanghai, Beijing, London, and Buenos Aires, it’s not uncommon to run into the most unusual characters. So, here’s a list of the most awkward things people have encountered on the subway.
Tony Stark met his end in the latest Avengers movie. Or Did He?
Actually, if the character hadn’t sacrificed himself, Robert Downey Jr. could have used this guy as a stand-in. He’s like Stark’s doppelganger and probably gets asked to take selfies with people a lot.
This guy on the subway is toting his beloved pooch on his customized backpack and it’s so cute.
The dog looks almost human with his arm on the man’s shoulder as he adjusts one of his shoes. If the animal could talk it would probably be asking, “Whatchu doin’?” Stumbling into something like this is something that will put a smile on your face for the rest of your day.
It used to be that whenever people looked at a punk, they would run the other way.
But this guy proved that punks are really chill and sweet creatures as this lady learned when he helped her carry a heavy box in Berlin. And if he didn’t have that beer bottle in his other hand, he could have helped her with the other box, too.
We don’t know how that man can be so happy when his shirt is matching with the subway seat.
It’s like his torso is wearing camouflage. Most people have accepted that subway seats have ugly patterns. But why in the world would anyone purchase a shirt that looks like a public transportation seat?
Someone took the underground subway in Seoul and was shocked to stumble into a train that was turned into a grocery store.
Wait, did the Redditor who took this pic to stumble into an underground traveling meat market? Because this might actually be pretty convenient.
Global temperatures continue to rise, but some people are not about to break a sweat over it.
Well, this might be a sight for sore eyes for some people. But we can’t help but think shoving a pad under your armpits is seriously genius, especially during those hot summer days.
It looks like these two are having an eventful life cosplaying as Chucky and his bride Tiffany.
You run into all sorts of interesting characters on the subway but rarely do you meet two possessed dolls who are probably out to get you. These two look even creepier than the movie versions of the characters.
The awesome thing about subways is that if you look close enough you might run into your twin.
This guy didn’t meet another person physically, but he did notice he had a doppelganger in this world and it was on this poster on the subway station. Or maybe it literally is this guy and someone used his face for this ad.
It looks like a bunch of drunk German frat boys, but they’re just guys heading home from Oktoberfest.
They must have had a really good time and are severely inebriated because most people in their right mind would think twice before leaning too close to the subway walls or laying on those dirty floors.
The Subway is like a box of chocolates, or in this case, a box of pizza with an apology inside.
You never know what you’ll find while you’re standing and waiting for your next stop. You might run into a guy who’s writing “I’m Sorry” on the inside of a pizza box. Hopefully, he gets a chance to redeem himself.
