These "Rush Hour Crushes" aren't quite what they seem...

You may have read the "rush hour crush" section of the Metro, whilst on a train or waiting in a station.

From reading them, you might think that just about everybody is falling in love with someone whilst on a bus, and then promptly forgetting to get their numbers, before never seeing them again.

But it seems that they might not quite be what they seem. One person, who worked a tedious and depressing job, took to Twitter the other day to talk about the years he spent writing fake (and hilarious) letters to Metro, most of which got printed.

It's hilarious, inspiring and surprisingly touching stuff.

He now writes for the Irish Times and trolls Nutella in his spare time.
