11 commuter problems that we know far too well
Everything that bothers us on the train to work: the irritating, the awkward and the downright angering…
It’s safe to say that commuting to work is no one’s favourite time of the day – sweatily standing in a hot and stuffy carriage, squashed between strangers trying desperately to avoid eye contact.
Whether it’s a 10-minute tube ride or an hour-long train journey, travelling to work in rush hour is not for the faint-hearted – often subject to delays, cancellations and an unfortunate lack of seats, but if you want to work in central London – it’s also absolutely necessary.
In the past few months, we’ve spent a lot more time than we would care to on public transport (ahem Southern Rail!) so we understand only too well the struggles of commuter life.
Here are 11 problems that those who commute on a daily basis will understand only too well…
1) Waiting on the station platform for hours in an endless string of frustrating delays and cancellations, only to be given an unsatisfactory explanation
‘Apologies for the delay ladies and gentlemen, the driver is currently having a cup of tea’ – yes this writer has genuinely heard that excuse before.
2) Being forced to stand in the carriage due to lack of seats, then clocking someone taking up a whole row with their shopping bags
And expressing your anger in the most British waypossible: sighing loudly and passive-aggressively until they feel sufficiently guilty and embarrassed.
