You know you're a commuter when...

Image source:weheartit
1. You set off for work whilst the rest of the world sleeps - you experience hours of the day that you never even knew existed.
2. Your daily struggle is wondering whether or not to dress appropriately for the morning chill or preparing for the afternoon heat...
3. The Metro will become your new daily read - forget the phone, your signal probably won't even work anyway.
4. You realise that gentlemen no longer exist. That seat over there? He will fight you for it.
5. You see the same people waiting on the platform, in the precise place that the door will pull up to. Oh, and you're one of them...
6. You will have a stand off with said other regulars and fight to be first on the train - after all there's usually only one seat left, the two of you can't have it.
7. You will - on several occasions, face the awkward situation of the person in the seat next to you falling asleep... and yes, you will have to poke them to wake them up when it pulls up at your stop.
8. You, yourself might end up being one of those people...
9. You will tut at the greedy so and so who believes that their bag deserves the seat more than you do.
10. You sigh at the none commuters who make a scene at how over crowded it is and how bad the over-priced service is - little do they know this is very quite normal...

Just a few things i picked up on...Are you a commuter? Feel free to add to this list!


  1. Swapping Starbucks cups for plain white polystyrene ones from the overpriced station shop is a personal favourite... xo

  2. Definitely agree with these! Racing for a seat or having someone's bum in your face as they stand in the aisle of an over crowded train haha! xx

  3. Ah, a post I can relate to so well. It's sad that I know exactly where to stand for the doors at 90% of stations. Working for the public transport system I now have so many pet hates.
    A personal favourite, that one person who doesn't know the rules of riding the escalator. You know there's always one wherever you travel

  6. ...when you think an hour tube journey to get to work is pretty speedy but all your friends outside of London whinge when it takes them longer than 15 minutes!
