Travel Etiquette


#1

Inspired by the classic tube train situation. You enter when the train is full sit down then after a few stops the carriage is pretty much empty accept for the guy or gal sitting next to you. What do you do?

  • Get up and sit next to empty seats. A more comfortable situation for the both of you
  • Stay next to the person like everybody else. Out of fear of offending or something
  • Make the decision based on whether you are sitting next to an attractive or not cause you’re a right perv.

I’d stay seated because I don’t understand why you’d move, not because I don’t want to offend someone. Why would you move? IDGI.


#3

I wouldn’t generally sit on a tube, but I would remain in the same seat unless it was uncomfortable or the other person asked me to move. Thank you


#4

I rarely sit down on the tube anyway, so it hasn’t ever come up as an issue for me, but I would stay where I was, lest it be seen that I’m trying to avoid them because they smell or something.


#5

Would probably be quite offended if I was the person sitting down and someone just got up and moved two seats away no reason, tbh


#6

Cause being next to someone or two people is considerably less comfortable, particularly when you have a back pack or something.


#7

Get up and walk down the carriages as though you’re getting off then sit in another seat out of sight.


#8

And you are in a heat sink line like the Bakerloo or the Central line. (I use the former to get to work)


#9

Completely free choice of where to position yourself on a tube for a short (let’s say 3 stop) tube journey:

  • seated, close to the doors
  • seated, in the middle of the carriage
  • standing, between the seats
  • standing, by the doors
  • on the half-seat things at the end of the carriage
  • other

Was sitting next to a guy on the Overground the other week. We were having a classic elbow battle over the armrest. It seemed a waste not to carry on for the last stop after everyone else had got off.

backpack when seated on the tube

  • on my back
  • on my lap
  • on the floor between my legs

Standing in front of the carriage end door. Ventilation.


#13

Unless it crowded and I have to push further in. Im not one of those idiots that blocks corridors creating pile ups by the entrance.


#14

You’re getting these wrong. This needs to be multi-choice. Floor between legs for an empty carriage. On lap for one with multiple standees. Not out of politeness, but because my bag will get kicked to fuck.


#15

thus the ‘completely free choice’ part. Obviously everyone other than a sociopath will abandon their personal preference when it impinges on others


#16

It is a busy train and there is a heavily pregnant person who can’t get a seat and nobody is moving. They look disgruntled but haven’t actually asked for a seat. You too are standing in this scenario. Do you say something to the selfish seated bastards?

  • Sure I am the people’s hero
  • No I do not

If I’m on for a while I’ll sit in the closest seat to the door that isn’t a priority seat. Otherwise I’ll stand in the little gap bit by the door but not in the way of the door.
