Teen Who Held In A Sneeze On Crowded Subway Becomes Twitter's Newest Hero

By Mark Pygas

During the dread of the morning commute, it's all about finding the heroes where you can. Everyone's at their worst when they're squeezed into a tin can that smells of body odour, but occasionally you'll find someone who inspires you for the rest of the day. Jamie Susskind, a lawyer and author, recently took to Twitter to describe how a sneeze on a crowded subway car motivated him on the way to work. 

Jamie writes, "I took the tube to work this morning at rush hour. It was absolutely mobbed. Carnage. You know the drill. Queues of anxious commuters waiting to board. TFL guy yelling incoherently about the doors."

Then continues, "Managed to squeeze on. The usual smell of bad breath and shower gel. There's normally a sort of blitz spirit on these occasions. Dark humour. How can there not be, when you can literally smell what the person next to you had for dinner last night?"
