Crowded and uncomfortable Chinese subways can often be difficult place to find rest. However, a woman from Chongqing seems to have happened upon an innovative, if macabre, way to get some shut-eye while on the go.
Pictures of a woman surnamed Yang have gone viral on the Chinese internet recently, with netizens heaping praise on the woman for her ingenious use of a scarf while trying to catch some z’s at the end of a long day.
According to Xinhua, Yang complained that the standard seats installed on the subway in Chongqing were extremely uncomfortable. Her method to fix this was inspired by her mother, who uses a similar method to relieve pressure on her spine.
In a survey on Weibo, a resounding 53% of respondents praised the woman for her creativity, although a worker at the metro did warn that it could result in serious injury in the event of a crash.
Now, we just need more local innovators to find a way to block out the noise from all the shouting, fighting and chicken foot spitting, then we’ll be golden.
