It is unbelievable what these people do on train journeys
This is why I carry hand sanitizer everywhere…
Most of us students need to make frequent use of trains, and whilst a nice long train journey can be pleasant sometimes, on other occasions, your journey might be ruined by people being weird – see if you relate to any these examples...
Bloke opposite me on the Overground is cutting his nails. They’re flying everywhere. How is that acceptable on public transport?! pic.twitter.com/7W4w5OAKuH— Aaron Flanagan (@aaronflan) May 21, 2018
When you find an empty seat on a train but there’s fingernails everywhere – I’d much rather stand up to be honest.
Guy on the train has poured a bag of popcorn out onto the table before eating it. Onto the table! At the end of a whole day’s service. pic.twitter.com/DeM320AfyI— Nick Coppack (@nickcoppack) March 6, 2018
There’s a guy straight up eating corn on the cob on my subway train at 8:51 in the morning wtf if this life— pat tobin (@tastefactory) May 21, 2018
Acceptable train food: Crisps: ✅ Sandwich: ✅ Other dry odourless things: ✅ Corn:❌ Oranges:❌ Fried chicken at 5:29am:❌ (wait what?)
BREAKING: 5.29 is too early to be eating generic ‘chicken and chips’ on the train. Not even KFC (‘cause they don’t have any chicken, obvs), but generic ‘closing-time chicken’ shop chicken. On a packed commuter train. At 5.29. What are these people thinking. <ends>— The Media Blog (@TheMediaTweets) March 22, 2018
There's a woman sitting near me on the coach who is chewing chewing gum and blowing/popping bubbles REALLY loudly 😠 She better not be on here for the whole 5 hours and 10 minutes 😡— SPNisSavedintheUK (@SPNSavedintheUK) May 21, 2018
That’s also quite annoying...
💟 I have the single seat on the train home - no gross people can touch me or talk to me! Ftw! pic.twitter.com/tdRZuFnXUw— P1nk Cupcak3 💟 (@p1nk_cupcak3) May 21, 2018
This is a solution, however, it tends to mean you’re right next to the toilet which is quite a risk – has there ever been a single time in history where a train toilet didn’t smell like utter death.
I just boarded my train and it was like walking into a gross metal tube where hundreds of sad trash people had hyperventilated all the oxygen from the air.— Ebeeto (@Ebeeto) May 21, 2018
OH WAIT THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT IT IS
To summarise: Trains are grim, people are grim, people on trains are grim.
