It’s bad enough asking your friends to help you move…it’s even worse when you ask them to help you move using only the New York City subway system. Young Min, a 24-year-old former Queens resident, somehow convinced two language school friends to help him move, via subway, to the Upper West Side with belongings including a collapsible closet, an air conditioner, all his books, and a 40-pound bag of rice, reports New York magazine.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, the trip involved a walk through the Times Square station to transfer onto another train. Not surprisingly, his friends didn’t return his calls the next day for more help—and one skipped their class to avoid him. Min says he left his TV in Queens, “but it’s too hard. I can’t ask anyone else to help.”
