If you commute, you know a series of things are true . . .
You stand in the same place on the platform every day, and secretly wish all manner of evils upon anyone who takes that spot.
You have a fave seat in that carriage.
Unlike day trippers commuters won’t stand if there is even just one empty seat.
There will always be one person who will decide to open/close the window against the wishes of every other person, but nothing is said.
We all hate how loud that person has their headphones.
You can sleep and wake up at your stop with a weird accuracy.
No matter how sensible it is, one person will choose to ignore common sense and stand in front of the doors blocking people getting off the train.
This countries personal hygiene is not as good as it should be.
Folding bikes barely ever are.
Nobody likes the person with the stinking food.
You know at least 3 other routes home/to work to cope with strikes/delays/cancellations.
You will complain if you just miss the tube at the platform, even if the next is 2 minutes later.
You know where all the toilets are on any given route, and how much they cost.
There will be a coffee shop you use every day.
Commuting is an utter ball ache.
These are the truths all commuters know, have I missed any dear readers?
