“家でやろう” or “Please do it at home” is an manner poster series that can been commonly found in the subway trains stations of Tokyo.
I remember seeing the above sign in most of the train stations while visiting Tokyo in April and what had prompted me to take this photo was because the guy in the poster looked more like he was about to jerk off while browsing that magazine instead of sharing the seat with the salaryman that’s standing up so that they could jerk off together.
Okay, enough of making fun of the funny poster and onward to the main topic; how is mannerism on the trains in your country/region like?
First, a incident in Tokyo.
During my trip to Japan last September, I still remember an incident (or not) that happened on the train while I was making my way down to the holy land of Akihabara. It being my first train ride down to Akiba, I decided to take a seat just opposite this really cute twintail (OMG) high school girl. The train journey down to Akiba would took roughly about 1 hour and decided to observe the girl.
Just a few minutes after the train had left the station, our twintail girl there decided to extract a remarkable cosmetics case and began applying eyeliner, some pancake makeup, and using that metal tweezer-like thing that is used for adjusting something around the eyes.
I had first though she was just doing some quick touch-ups to her face, probably meeting her boyfriend or someone afterwards, and didn’t bother much with her applying makeup on the train. But, I was wrong.
As the train passes by each station, I couldn’t help but wonder how long she was going to take with her makeup. During the whole train journey, I was observing her applying several cosmetics on the same spot of her face, tweaking and adjusting everything to near-perfection, before retrying and repeating the steps over and over again. I was pretty amused by this and would have wanted to take a picture of her but my lack of Japanese speaking ability at that time failed me ORZ
Now, mannerism onboard the trains in Singapore.
Often see people talking loudly on their mobile phones or blasting loud music from their phone speakers and making a din. Others include, children running around and people eating on board the trains. I am however, guilty for one of those as I often do drink water on the trains as well ^^;
How is mannerism on the trains in your country/region like? Are you guilty of any ‘offences’ as well?
More manner posters can be found at the Tokyo Metro site <Link>
