What is the most annoying thing you can do on public transport?
A new survey suggests we’re easily annoyed by commuters on London’s underground. We asked the public to tell us their biggest travelling irritant
If you like being liked, best avoid travelling on public transport. According to a new YouGov survey, no matter how you behave on the London Underground, at some point you’re likely to annoy someone.
Of a list of 20 irritating tube behaviours, 90% of Londoners say that entering a carriage without giving passengers a chance to get off is annoying, 74% hate it when people put bags on seats, 71% find smelly food a nuisance and 56% dislike it when people take too long at the ticket barrier. With talking loudly, wearing a backpack, manspreading and, of course, failing to move down inside the carriage all listed as possible travel faux pas, it is tricky to get through rush hour without rubbing someone up the wrong way. And which Londoner hasn’t squeezed themselves on to a packed tube in an attempt to get home just a little earlier?
