You must have traveled in a metro at least once or maybe you are a regular commuter; it doesn’t really matter. I bet that you must have encountered these 7 types of people in the Ladies’ Coach of a metro even if you have traveled just once. As a regular commuter, I can literally write a thesis on the weird people that I encounter in my ”awesome journey” daily but let me keep it brief by highlighting just the significant ones.
- The Chatterbox
Well, it doesn’t matter whether you know her or not; even if you are least interested in knowing about her family or friends, she will make sure that you are well aware about everything. They are opposite of those eavesdropping “aunties” making their job rather simpler.
2 minutes of standing in proximity of these ladies and trust me, you will get to know what her distant uncle’s son is up to! Seriously girls, no one is interested in your “happy go lucky” life.
2. Future Chetan Bhagat or Paulo Coelho
You just can’t miss the site of these readers who think that holding a book before their faces makes them seem too sophisticated or intelligent. But the truth is that most of them are busy in flaunting their intelligence and are actually busy in staring at other people. In a way, they avoid giving their seat to anyone who’s in need as they pretend to be deep in their novels.
Next time you board the metro, make sure you locate the future Chetan Bhagat or Gabriel Garcia and take a tip or two.
- Overhearing conversations or peeking into others’ chats
If you travel regularly by a metro, then admit this fact that you have faced this too. These people are very much engrossed in listening to others’ conversations or read their WhatsApp texts. They try their best to get a sneak peek at what the girl next to them has messaged her boyfriend.
- The Runners for seat!
Okay, now these runners sound illogical to me. They will run like crazy to catch the metro as if it was the last metro on this planet and then push everyone out of their way to get quickly into the metro. The story doesn’t end here! After that, they will strive hard to get a seat and guess what, they don’t even get any. *Slow claps*
5. The too tired souls
These ladies act so tired that even any 70+ aged person would seem more energetic than them. They act hard to convince people that they’re tired but still when no one offers them a seat, they switch over to the floor. Even when people have no space to stand, they won’t move.
- The infamous Cat Fighters
I feel that these people have already vowed to fight over anything. If it’s a crowded metro, then obviously you’ll get pushed or someone may step over your foot. What’s the point in getting into a silly fight over this starting with – “Why did u push me?”
“Excuse me, it’s too crowded.”
“People don’t have manners these days.”
It’s better not to indulge in a fight with these people; it’s just a waste of time.
- The models
Thanks to the front camera which has proved to be a bliss for all the girls. You can easily find pretty girls applying kohl or liner before a mirror or their phones!
There’s a lot more that can be added to this list but let’s just stop for now. If you haven’t noticed them yet, then the next time you go for a metro ride, observe carefully.
