This comic is kind of ridiculous because the characters have never been in proportion to how much a real person fills in a subway seat, so these two guys are enormous.

Anyway, this happens a lot on the subway. You’ll have two people who are on the larger side and their legs spill over into the middle seat. I get the impression that in that scenario, they’re both thinking that no one is going to try to take that seat. Then I see the look of fear in their eyes when they realize that I don’t care and I’m small enough to juuuuuust fit in between. I might not be able to lean back when I sit down, but I’m coming in.
