Commuters are a strange bunch…

on 05/06/2010

Four days commuting from Cambridge (well Waterbeach actually) to London has given me the chance to see what the life of a commuter is like.  I love people watching and a commuter train and a busy London station are great for this.  So here are some descriptions of some of the people…

TCP Man – one morning I was sitting next to the window and there were a few spare seats around including double ones but for some reason this man decided to sit next to me.  He smelt of TCP.  Why sit next to someone where there are double seats available?

Power point twins – not actual twins.  They both got on at Cambridge and sat next to me and the man opposite.  They then proceeded to edit a power point presentation by one tweaking on their laptop saving and passing a memory stick to other for them to tweak and send back, while constantly talking, loudly, about the presentation.  It was not even 7am.  Oh and they both looked like they may have slept in their suits.

Sociable three – there seems to be a rule about not speaking to fellow commuters but there are a few that do speak.  This particular group got on at Waterbeach and chatted happily to each other all the way to Kings Cross.

Mascara girl – there are often women doing there make up on the train, but this one women must have spent 5 minutes just piling on the mascara.  It was think black and clumpy when she had finished.

Nose picker – some people seem to think that other people can’t see them when they are on a train, that or they have no manners.  This suited young man spent rather a lot of the journey with his finger up his nose.

Platform lady – I mean the shoes not the concrete at the side of the railway.  She was staggering along in the sort of skirt that leaves nothing to the imagination and the most ridiculous shoes that she clearly could not walk it.  Why do women do things like that?

And last but probably the worst…

Yellow knickers – this was a lady on the tube who was wearing a short, tight skirt and a jacket type suit.  The problem was that she didn’t seem to realise that wearing that skirt she really should have kept her legs together when sitting.  I don’t think I need to elaborate.
