12 unwritten rules to live by when riding the Metro!

People skills are a good thing to have when riding the metro, and every metro rider needs to know these unwritten rules. To make sure your commute is calm and pleasant, for everyone! 

1: Get through the gate as quickly as you can! 

That means if your Nol Card doesn't work the first time, head to the back. Especially if there is a huge queue!

2: Your designer bag does not deserve a seat! 

We all know it's from Karama anyway!

3: Don't take your shoes off

We're all stuck in what is essentially, a tube. Please don't stink the place out! 

4: If someone is wearing headphone... Don't talk to them! 

They're wearing them for a reason!

5: Headphone wearers: We don't want to hear your music

Turn it down a little bit please! 

6: There are 2 seats, not 3! 

Please don't try and squeeze on to the chair... I have personal space you're violating

7: MEN: You're getting stared at because you're too close to the ladies section

STEP BACK! 

8: If you're going to sleep, don't expect us to wake you up 

And get angry at people next to you when you miss your stop, we didn't know where you were going 

9: PRIORITY SEATING

There is even a sign, why does nobody listen! 

10: Don't eat on the metro and expect us to lie for you

We all saw you, and you read the signs... Now pay the fine!
