2. 1. The 10-coin limit on ticket purchases
Trying to buy your ticket by inserting coins one by one but forgetting that after 10, it cancels your ticket and refunds all your money. Much to the dismay of all the people waiting in line behind you.
4. 3. Trackworks
Even though the buses aren’t much slower they are for some reason SO much more annoying
5. 4. Rush hour
Guess I’ll be sitting on the stairs… if I’m lucky
6. 5. Accidentally boarding a quiet carriage
How DARE you even sneeze?! Get out before your cellphone accidentally rings!
7. 6. It is always freezing cold
Usually due to the air conditioner. But in this case, rain… inside. Not much better.
8. 7. The carriages are always dirty
As if graffiti is the worst thing you have seen on a train. Don’t get me started on the rubbish, vomit or… urine.
9. 8. Never being able to hear the announcer
Can you repeat that?! Where are we?!
10. 9. Unsuccessfully trying to sleep
Should have stayed in the quiet carriage…
12. 11. Out of order toilets on suburban lines
That feeling of utter despair when you realize you now have to hold it all the way to your destination
13. 12. Your fellow passengers
Only open seat left on the train. Riiiiiight there.
14. 13. The token bogan looking for a fight
You’ve come to accept this is going to happen. Check other carriages with less chaos and make your escape.
