10 Types of Most Annoying Subway People I See Every Day
1.First of all, I think that a person who gets on a train and keeps their backpack on (when it’s crowded) should be slapped in the face right away. What’s wrong with you!? Don’t you see you’re taking extra space and people have your backpack pushed into their faces now?
2. Those who decide to stand in place right after they cross the door – they get on a train and here they are (I thought this is only a Polish thing, but I guess it happens everywhere). They completely don’t think about a hundred of people behind them who would also love to get on the train. I have a question to that type of person: aren’t you afraid that someone will finally push you so hard that you will fall down on your face…? And btw, that person will be me.
3. Those who get on a train before other people get off the train. Have some manners! How they’re suppose to get off if you push your ass forward, so they can’t even leave the train?! I’m always so tempted to grab their shirt and drag them back onto a platform. I haven’t done it… yet.
4. Those who let their children do whatever they feel like. I believe that you’re tired and you just want a moment of peace, but why do we have to suffer, too? Sometimes those kids are everywhere and they scream like crazy, whereas their parents just sit and stare at their phones. That’s why I always carry my headphones with me.
5. Those who talk loud on their phone. I really don’t care what’s going on in your life. Not even a bit. So please – keep your voice down.
6. Drama queens. It’s either a conversation they’re supposed or a “traumatic” situation that this person was just involved in. And everyone on the train has to be a part of that. Again – I couldn’t care less so stop it right there. And please – get a life.
7. Those who think that eating curry chicken with all the extra sauces (or Popeye’s) on a subway is a great idea. I understand you’re hungry. I’m hungry, too. But could you please wait and eat it at home and grab some small non-fragrant bite in a meantime? The whole train starts smelling like a food truck and combining that with people’s smell it’s just not tasty at all.
8. Those who watch videos on their phones and have it on a full blast. Why do you think I want to listen to that, too…? Come back to point 5.
9. Those who notice an available seat and run like their lives depended on pushing other people along the way. I want to sit down, too, but could you please not act like a crazy person? And sometimes they will sit only for a few stops. My ride is one hour long, so calm the fuck down and let me take that seat.
10. The frozen ones. Some people just get on a train and stay in one position, regardless of changing conditions on a train. It doesn’t matter that suddenly an extra 50 people got on a train – they would not move. It’s like they are in a different world that doesn’t include other passengers. They think that this part of the floor that they took when they walked in belongs to them now.
There are times – like, every day – that I just want to shake those people and say: “Hey, wake up and come back to your senses!” (I’ll curse also, but let’s not talk about that). But except for that, I consider myself an angel.
