Commuting

Commuting:

For my ‘dayjob’ i commute to London 3 days a week

I am on the train

A LOT

 

I sit in the quiet zone

I think the reason for this is in the title of the carriage

QUIET ZONE

Over the past 12 months I have seen many things in the quiet zone

 

Phone calls

Very loud phone calls

Phone calls so loud I can hear them through my noise cancelling headphones

Infuriates me

 

Loud laptop typers

 

The type of typers that are angryallthetimeandhitthespacebarEXTRAhardfordramaticeffect

 

Some people do not understand table etiquette

Let me give you a visual

seatsso, where should the next person sit?????

I know my fellow commuter that you understand the rules

seats

DO NOT SIT OPPOSITE ME UNLESS YOU ARE PERSON NUMBER 3 or 4

3 can sit opposite as I’d rather spread out my stuff sideways

 

I have seen 2 grown men argue about an arm rest

They even dragged the train manager into it

Manager had the best response…..Move seats most of the carriage is empty

Neither one moved! (I seem a little more normal now about my seating preference!)


I saw a woman arrested because she had the wrong ticket on the wrong train and refused to pay for a new one

She also refused to give her name to the train manager

She also refused to sign the paperwork to say she refused all the other things she refused


I’ve seen people argue over exactly what ‘quiet’ means

 

I think it should be renamed the silent carriage (stolen from a comedian from Mock The Week)

For now I continue my commute, and I continue to be angry at those who make noise in my carriage.

 

Occasionally I speak up
No one has shouted at me…yet.
