THEY’RE the things that turn a simple train trip into a painful ordeal.

A survey released today by the National Roads and Motorists Association has identified commuters’ pet peeves when catching the train — and they’re things that every passenger can relate to.

Dirty, rubbish-laden and graffitied carriages was the main problem with catching a train, while security was the biggest concern at railway stations.

Nobody seemed to comment on one of my pet hates when travelling by train.  I find it very annoying when a fellow traveller insists on speaking on his or her mobile phone with a very loud voice, so that everyone can't help but hear one end of the conversation.  It can indeed be very intrusive and disruptive to the peace.  Sometimes conversations are long, can get quite heated, somewhat personal information can be disclosed, or language can be a little colourful.  Some phone users seem no to care that they are actually in a public setting whilst nattering away, which shows total lack of respect for those around them.  I realise some calls would be important (especially if one is arranging a lift to meet the caller at the station for instance), but please keep your calls brief.   It is just plain common courtesy.

Most annoying things:

Constant sniffling (blow your nose for F**KS sake)
Talking loudly (whilst on phone or to other passengers)
Eating like a pig (is it really that hard to eat with your mouth closed? Most people learn to do it when theyre about 2 years old)
No toilets (and then the PSO will fine you for urinating on the platform, what else are you supposed to do?)
