Preaching to the obvious choir (LJ Mobile post)

Two pro-tips if you're riding the MAX:

1. If you wait for people to deboard first before you get on, there'll be a lot more room for you to get on and find a seat. If someone is standing right at the door and facing outside when the train stops? Yeah, that's a good indication that they're wanting to deboard and would greatly appreciate it if you stepped aside for them instead of forcing them to squeeze past you.

2. Baby strollers take up a great deal of space and thus aren't appropriate to have sitting unfolded in the narrow aisles. Same goes for those metal shopping "granny" carts. I tripped over one of those today trying to get through the aisle because the cart took up most of the aisle's width.

(I know, I know... the people who most need to read this are the ones least likely to. =P )
