Guys, before your sit down on the subway seats or benches, please pay attention and look at the seats first. Sometimes, some women might leave menstrual blood on subway seats. You definitely don’t want any of this menstrual blood on your pants or skirts.
Back then, many women carried a rag to prevent such stains on public seats or benches, which is where the expression ‘on the rag’ came from.
Some women don’t realize that the time has come, we just need to be careful when we need to sit down. Not only menstrual blood, sometimes we got coffee or soda on these seats too.
