If your city has a metro or train system, you’re probably pretty thankful it’s there. Even if it’s unpredictable and needs a remodel, it’s better than having to deal with city traffic and parking.

That said, there are some people who really take public transport for granted and treat it like it’s their own personal bedroom, bathroom, and… actually, there is no comparison, I don’t know anybody who has a room in their own house where they think it’s appropriate to throw food all over the floor and leave it there.

When you’re using public transport, remember that the “public” means everyone has to use it, and next time, you could be the person getting nail clippings flicked into your lap.

Researchers analyzing handrails and other surfaces in the London Underground found an astonishing variety of bacteria that get there by way of human feces, rats, mice, and sewage. Some are even associated with antibiotic-resistant infections.

While the researchers reassure readers that the bacteria won’t be able to get through to most people with healthy immune systems just through skin contact, immunocompromised people, and those who visit people who are, should be extra-careful with hygiene after passing through.

The only seat left on a train had some woman's feet perched on it. I asked her politely to move her feet and then dusted off the mud. She refused to move her feet over on the floor to allow me any reasonable space so I just put my feet on top of hers. She then asked 'have you got a problem?' Hah! I love that question! Gives me carte-blanche to tell them exactly what I think.

Again, and be quick about it: grab legs, swing her around to face front, then stare her down until she backs off. As an added bonus, you can hand her some tissues to wipe her dirty boot water off the seat.

Ive literally read the sign in a voice so they and the other passengers can hear. Followed by the amazing laser eye I was blessed with. I loved the look on that persons face when they realized I was talking about them and then realized I wasn't the only one looking at them with disdain. My husband and kids aren't always fans of me doing it, except when they bring up later and we are all laughing.

As far as the number of unique bacteria found, the New York metro blew London out of the water by the measurements of one study. It mostly paints a similar picture of pathogens that are usually riding around with us in quantities too small to do us harm, but there are some additional residents: New York is ruled by a type of bacteria that’s used to clean up toxic metals from wastewater. Benevolent bacteria used to ferment kimchi and age cheese also like to tag along with metro riders.

In one statistic that's so ominous it's almost funny, researchers also found an abundance of DNA that didn’t match any identifiable organism.

I delayed a train the other day because I couldn't access the wheelchair area of my train because inconsiderate a**holes had left their luggage in the clearly labeled wheelchair area. The guard getting me on the train had to find the luggage owners and make them move their luggage to the luggage racks (all empty and like 5m away) but the 'lovely' luggage owners refused. It took the guard threatening to call transport police to remove them from the train (wheelchair spaces are protected by law on public transport in Britain) for them to finally and slowly move their stuff. They then loudly moaned when the tannoy announcement said we were now running 10 minutes late, seemingly unable to understand that they delayed us. Was a horrible train journey and I wish people were more considerate to wheelchair designated areas, you never know if you'll end up in a wheelchair one day- I didn't expect to!
