The best one since I began working in Philly was the guy who was sitting by the turnstile when I was headed home. When I swiped my fare card he looked horrified and said "Don't go down there, you will end up in New Jersey."

There were more than I can count when I worked in NYC, but prior to 9/11 there was a lady who set up shop near the World Trade Center station. She would cuss out trains going by and anyone who ventured to close to "her house" she also was one of the few I ever encountered who would not accept handouts.

One final Philly story I noticed a young female panhandler who held a sign that said "Homeless, Hungry and Pregnant". Poor girl was preggers for at least two years.
