#972 Barely squeezing on to a packed bus or subway

It’s the end of the day, and all you’re thinking about is getting home, kicking back and relaxing. But between you and home stands a daunting commute, thousands of people jostling for sometimes limited space on public transportation.

So when you see that vehicle pull up packed and still manage to find a few square inches to squeeze in, it’s great, because the next ride could be a few minutes later, and may up being just as full.

Sure it might be tight, it might be narrow, but getting where you’re going a few minutes earlier sure feels

I am just one of the many who have been inspired by Neil Pasricha's 1000 Awesome Things to be better, to see the world as a better place, and to keep the awesome movement alive, as I think it makes the world a better place! We all have enough negative to hear about, what we need is a positive space, positive outlook on life. And I hope this blog will give us the chance to do it!

  1. Yay! This is a good one 🙂 Our Perth trains are never as busy, the times I’ve been on- there’s usually been quite a few spare seats to lounge on. But on the Sydney monorail- jeez, I know what you mean! And also, the feeling is great because you could have been lazy and said ‘nah I’ll wait’ but you tough it out and get there quicker- and you can feel priviledged that there wasn’t much space, but it was just for you 🙂

  2. I have seen this picture before and I LOOOOVVVVVVVVE it! *Superb!*
    Last time we were in Vancouver, we took the sky train everywhere. It’s so much easier and so much more fun. “Oh the places you’ll go and the people you’ll meet!” It’s Dr. Suess in living colour! Awesome!!!
    Anyway, one day it got so very crowded and the doors were slamming before the people could get on and off. Then some pros magically appeared and held the doors so passengers could embark and disembark safely.
    I do love to catch that train, in the *nic* of time- really awesome=D
