Leaners: noun. People who, when in the metro, lean against the main pole in the middle of the standing area, covering the pole with their entire body and preventing others from holding the pole in order to prevent themselves from falling.
I hate them.
Note: when writing this blog, Copain asked me what I was writing about. Leaners, I said. What's that?, he asked. People who lean on the pole in the metro, I explained.
Oh, I do that.
People - I'm living with a leaner. dude.
Great example of a leaner from Unsuck DC Metro - I couldn't have taken a better photo myself!
