Here's some milk and cookies for you and please enjoy. =)
Train manners. It’s not something that is really said out loud or something you need to be told. It’s kind of like a mutual agreement with the rest of the passengers when you hop on a train. I mean there are the rules of no swearing, no alcohol, no feet on seats, having a valid ticket etc but I mean something more extreme like showering on the train (well maybe not that extreme xD). However, recently I’ve seen things and it makes me wonder why people do this. It’s like they don’t notice the other people on the train and they think they’re at home. This is just some of the stuff I’ve seen and hopefully you won’t be in any of the situations I have been in.
So first off, I don’t understand why women/girls do their makeup on the train. I personally don’t wear any so maybe I don’t know how long it actually takes them in the morning. I understand if they need to reapply lipstick, lip gloss, lip balm, lip-whatever but I mean those powdery stuff (don’t know the term ><) or eyeliner or mascara or whatever makeup products are out there. If the train ride happens to be a bit bumpy, I sure the only thing they won’t be mascar-ing are their eyelashes. If you need the time to put on makeup, then please, set your alarm clock 10 minutes earlier.
Rubbish…kinda speaks for itself doesn’t it. Why can’t people throw their rubbish away when they get off the train? It isn’t a food court where there are people who are there constantly to clean up for you. People leave them on seats which lead to people putting them on the floor which leads to drinks being spilled which leads to sticky floors and the train smelling like…crap (couldn’t think of another word =\).
|They say the more, the merrier =)|
I think this one is a one off thing and I’ve only saw it once and I hope to never see again. This actually happened while I was in Hong Kong and the train was pretty full but not packed. There was this lady who decided that clipping your nails is ok on the train. For me, that is pretty disgusting and to see her finger nails fly off in different directions, it’s like seeing someone flick their boogers at you. I guess she was just showing some love by sharing…
|Because letting Paul roll off like that is the right thing to do.|
Well done George, well done...
Lastly, I believe in personal space when it comes to sitting next to strangers on the train. There isn’t a need for you to shove the front page of the mX in my face every time you turn the page unless it’s the overheard section, I’ll make an exception for that. Also, to the girl who put her feet up next to the seat I was sitting on to put her socks on, I might as well have given you a feet massage because it took you have the train ride to do so.
|Now where can I get this cat??|
Until next time,
