This guy's determination to stay awake is pretty impressive. You'd almost suspect that he's trying to break some personal record or something. From what I can see, the train doesn't look particularly crowded but even if it were, just swallow your pride and sit on the floor, guy. Although, I guess I can understand his not wanting to that. I wouldn't want to sit on a dirty floor ruining that amazing pair of khaki pants either.
One thing is for sure, whatever he was doing the night before needs to stop. Trying to stay awake when your exhausted on a long subway ride is challenging enough, but if you're so tired that you can barely stand, you may want to reconsider watching TV till four in the morning, (if that's what it was).
Fortunately for us all, at least he's isn't driving to work.
