A woman won the “Worst Commute of the Week” award Tuesday after being stuck in the New York City subway for two hours.

City University librarian Jennifer Tang, 49, was down in the subway during the last-five minutes of her Manhattan-to-Forest Hills two-hour commute Jan. 20, according to Reuters. Tang’s award came from the Riders Alliance, a grass-roots organization that wants N.Y. to fix the subway system.

“I hadn’t used the bathroom, figuring I only had a 30-minute commute from Manhattan to Queens,” Tang said. The librarian added she now always ensures to hit the bathroom before taking the subway.

The Riders Alliance previously made a 2015-released book, “Subway Horror Stories,” that details some of the most infuriating situations during the commute, according to their website.
