Commuting Etiquette

Sylvie sent over a link to a Modern Manners website. The topic of the post was commuting etiquette. Here's a snapshot from the author, Richie Frieman

The Seat is Not Your bed.
Here's the deal, folks, I don't care if that seat is the single most comfortable piece of furniture your body touches all day, it is not yours. You don't own it. You're not even renting it. You're only temporarily using it, at most. So, that seat is not your bed, and certainly not a testing area for your bodily functions.

The Train is Not Your Bathroom.
Clipping your toenails is one of the most disgusting things you could do in public.

The Train is Not Your Office.
It's one thing to type away on your laptop of tablet while commuting, it's another thing to hold a full-blown meeting in the middle of your commute.

They need to print this out and hand it to people boarding the train/leave copies everywhere/make annoucements. Something. It's perfect.

And in a perfect world, the GO-transit Rent-a-Cops would hand this out with the ticket for the people actually breaking the by-laws.
