You might be a foamer if...

 

You take one or more "sick days" a week to go transit fanning.

 

You purposely choose to reside in proximity to a subway/bus terminal.

 

You select a school or workplace based on the multiple amount of transfers you have to make.

 

Your trips to "the store" last in excess of two hours long and go through two boroughs.

 

You only go out with your friends because you know you'll be riding the bus/subway at least once that night.

 

You would rather go out and transit fan then spend time with your girlfriend/wife.

 

I have to say I've been guilty of all of these at least once. :lol: 

(Sometimes I wonder what the f**k am I doing with my life).

"If you've ever (insert action here), you might be a redneck foamer."

 

something like that.

If you ever purposely avoided a bus route or train route because of the type of equipment used, you might be a foamer.

 

If you have more pictures of buses and trains than of yourself on your Facebook page, you might be a foamer.

 

If everything that comes out of your mouth is bus or train related, you might be a foamer.

 

If riding a certain train on a certain route "made your dreams come true", you might be a foamer.

 

If your bedroom has more MTA items than an actual crew room, you might be a foamer.

If you avoid a line because it has old trains, you might be a foamer.

 

If you avoid a line because it has new trains, you might be a foamer.

 

If you call everyone in the transit enthusiast community a foamer, you might be a foamer.

 

If you call someone who goes out of their way to photograph a vehicle a foamer, you are an arrogant, self-righteous prat.

Lol, well not sure about the last part, but if its the main point of the trip and it takes a few hours of traveling and waiting, then you gotta wonder if that was time well spent.

If you're on vacation, then it's probably time well spent, especially if not everyone in your family is going with you (i.e. drop the women off at a shopping mall and then head out).

 

As for real life... there's far worse things you can do. High school students do this. A LOT.

I don't know why I wrote "real life", I meant in your home town.

 

Here, 15 year olds get stoned at the fall fair. After that, ANYTHING seems like a good idea.

If you've ever one hour doing nothing to catch a bus/train, you might be a foamer.

If you've ever spent the whole weekend to railfan and not do homework, you might be a foamer.

If you've ever put a train or bus name as your username outside of NYCTF (instagram, facebook), you might be a foamer.

If you've ever screamed for a train, you might be a foamer.

If you've ever tried to hug a train or bus, you might be a foamer.

If you've ever wrote a word problem in school about trains or buses, you might be a foamer.

(I hope I don't start anything here.)

If you've ever made a pushcart with all the subway lines, you might be a foamer. 

EDIT:

If you've ever "hummed" the propulsion of the trains, you might be a foamer.

I do have a few "here's you sign" type:

 

True story, I was walking through manhattan on my way to class when I was at John Jay, when a couple walks up to me and ask "which way is the water?"

.

I just looked at them and said "You do know you're on an island, right..?"

I believe that most of these posts are meant to be good natured humor.

 

We are all foamers though. We all foam over one thing or another. Be it trains, planes, football players, baseball players, hot women, or anything else, I'm sure we are all guilty of foaming over something.

If you defend your opinion about a new station (in a previous thread) knowing that it might be a fail anyways, you might be a foamer.

If you avoid a bus route because it only runs on only one type of bus fleet, you might be a foamer.

If you can somehow track a specific fleet whether it's bus or subway and it's easy for you to find, you might be a foamer.

If you skip and day of work/school to hunt a new fleet in service, you might be a foamer.

If you prefer that one line because of past events and activities on that route ;), you might be a thirsty foamer.
