I hate commuting. Don't we all! Eh? However, I don't hate the act of travelling from one place to another. I can read a book (retro), I can obsessively play games on my phone, I can snack on stuff I've found in my handbag... So if that's the case, why do we hate commuting? Because: strangers. And lots of them. Getting right up in your grill.
I'm a 21-year old graduate of a London university, and I've never lived away from home.

Imagine the situation: you're on the train to a meeting, going over some papers and you need to leave the carriage to go grab a coffee from the buffet car. What do you do with your briefcase?

Public transport is a common method of travel by many people across the globe, yet somehow some people still haven't mastered the art of getting it right. We have people that seem to think that they are the only one in a rush to get to a certain place, that they are the only one on the tube or that nobody around them has any transport requirements.
