From Linda C:

I had baked many batches of Halloween cookies and was taking them to work for my co-workers. The cookies were in a shopping bag, up against the subway door of a very crowded rush-hour train. The train should have started to leave the station, when the doors opened unexpectedly. Before I had a chance to think, I leaned out of the door to try to catch my falling shopping bag. The train doors snapped shut quickly. This time my neck was in between them. I thought it might be my demise. I yelled and looked pleadingly at a nasty-looking woman on the platform in front of my head. She mumbled something, and banged hard on the subway door. As the doors opened, she called me a “stupid A-hole” and disappeared into the crowd.
