No, I will not move down the carriage.

24. The Shoes- and Socks-Off Person.

23. The Massive Backpack That Takes Up the Space of Two People Person.

RT @shop_girl_uk: Wish this dumb ass would take his backpack off. @tube_boob

People wearing massive backpacks on a busy train or bus, the kind you could scale the Himalayas with, seem to have NO IDEA how annoying it is to have to manoeuvre around it. Just take the damn thing off please.

22. People Who Actually Move House Using Public Transport.

21. The "Let It All Hang Out" Person.

20. The Space Hogger.

19. Fancy Dress Wankers.

Hartlepool fans on the way to game at Charlton dressed as an army of Smurfs on the Tube, brilliant haha! #Hartlepool

18. Pigeons.

17. The Person Who Smells Like They May Have Had Something Other Than Cornflakes for Breakfast.

Meditating commuter. Ponce level defcon 5.

“@NeilllP: @tube_boob says everything about what he thinks of others. ”

14. The "Let's Eat an Entire Meal on the Train" Person.

13. The Shoulder Sleeper.

12. The Nail Polish Person.

“@AnnaBermuda: @tube_boob painting your nails on the tube... Is this normal?! ”

No one can fail to be impressed by the skill with which women apply their makeup on the top deck of a rickety bus that last had its suspension replaced in 1974, but can we agree the petrol fumes of nail polish are a step too far?

11. The Chewing Gum with Mouth Open Person.
