Ever fall asleep on a subway train?
The user who snapped the photograph explained.
“Heading home on the Q train yesterday when this young black guy nods off on the shoulder of a Jewish man. The man doesn’t move a muscle, just lets him stay there. After a minute, I asked the man if he wanted me to wake the kid up, but he shook his head and responded, ‘He must have had a long day, let him sleep. We’ve all been there, right?’ He was still sleeping soundly when I got off the train 20 minutes later.” This photograph was snapped by Reddit user Winnipeg-saint and posted to the website’s photography forum last week and eventually made its way to the larger site and Reddit’s most popular links.
