i spend hours on trains too, about 8 hours a day
. not because i commute though, i drive the things
we tend to rifle through whatever newspapers the commuters have left on the tables/seats, unfortunately with the advent of the 'metro', there are very few decent reads. I also commuted for 9 years (before i had the 'if you can't beat them, join them' brainwave) and i have seen it all; commuter rage, fisticuffs, drugs, sex, father christmas, dead bodies (not all in the same incident i should add) and from my experiences as a commuter i now keep the door to my cab firmly locked with my bag against the door.
i have noticed newspaper rage though, i used to see how many people i could get to ruffle their papers (5 points) and tut (10 points) when i was on my way to work.
but if you buy a decent paper, donate it to your driver if you've done with it. it'll make our day. (no, we don't get out much!)
