7 Most Annoying Things - The London Underground

7 most annoying things about The London Underground that could drive me to punch someone in the face.

1. Those who push you back and get on the carriage before waiting for you to get off first.

2. Those who like cattle climb on top of you from behind while pushing you out of the way because they don't like that today you just feel like taking an easy stroll to your destination.

3. Those that decide that the best day of the week to suicide and jump in front a moving train is on Monday mornings 8 am peak hour, and make you at least one hour late to work. I guess they just want revenge on all the bad years experience on the tube.

4.Those who have no limits when it comes to showering in their own perfume and sit right next to you as you hold your breath, giving them evil stares and pray to God that you don’t faint trying to get off the tube.

5. Those old women who get offended that you kindly offer them your seat and bluntly refuse it. They then check out their reflection though the train glass while thinking, ‘I won’t let that little bitch patronize me. I’m still the youthful blond sex bomb that Italian men drool over.’

6. Those who can't wait for the next train which is in 2 minutes and run for their lives as the doors shut in their face, in the process their jacket gets stuck in the door and they rip it trying to free themselves.

7. Those who have no respect for personal space while pushing and squeezing their fat selves onto the tube although it’s full to the maximum, while for the rest of the trip you have to endure their long greasy hair flicking into your mouth.

But what I hate hate hate the most about the London underground apart from its constant unreliable signal failures, closed train lines and suffocating people is that I have to pay close to £1680 Pounds a year ($2660 USD) to put up with all that s***t.

Great photos, and some funny observations. And you have some of the same pet peeves as I do, even though I ride the trains in Chicago. (My hub on Chicago L etiquette is here: http://hubpages.com/travel/CTA-L-Etiquette-How-to-... ).

The only thing that's very different is the cost. I can't believe you guys have to pay that much-- universal access passes to all CTA trains and buses costs about $1100 a year.

Great hub, voted up and funny!

I though such rush in train is only there in India. Interesting photos and text. Thank you for sharing. Expect more such stuff in future.

sunilkunnoth2012 I totally agree there is much more congestion on public transport to come in the future. I'm sure India could be worse, but I wasn't used to it (London underground) at first, because I come from Sydney which doesn't have such a large population.

Thanks for reading and your comment :)
