Platform Squatting

Weeknights, the Flushing-bound 7 trains alternate between local and express. In my experience, if you take the express, you have a 1 in 3 or 4 chance of overtaking the local that you had missed by 61st St.-Woodside. Which means, if you are me, you spend a lot of time on the 61st platform waiting for train headlights, hoping the next one is a local. Tired, I decided to just plunk down against a lamp pole at the western end of the platform. A moment later, I noticed, a kid in hoodie, baseball cap, and Adidas did the same.
