ARE you an antisocial public transport user? If so, summer provides some excellent opportunities to antagonise people. Here are some ideas.
Wear obscene clothing
There’s nothing like a penis and testicles bulging from too-tight shorts to put other public transport users off their Greggs sausage roll. Female lycra fans should also ask themselves whether they want complete strangers to be familiar with their sexual organs.
Take a freaked-out dog
Take a large, wild-eyed dog with its tongue hanging out, half-mad from the heat and sensory overload of public transport. Commuting is already grim enough without worrying you’re trapped in a confined space with an animal that could suddenly go mental and think your b*llocks are a chew toy.
Be an inconsiderate posh b*stard
If you’re going to an event called ‘Vivaldi in the Park’ or similar, turn the train into an obstacle course made of hampers, cool boxes and collapsible chairs. Make the ordinary wage slaves feel even more miserable by having conversations like: “So is Ali enjoying setting up her production company in LA?”
Strip off to show people your muscles
If you’re a bloke who’s pretty ripped due to spending waaaay too much time at the gym, refuse to wear a shirt on public transport as if you’re posing for the cover of a sh*t album by 50 Cent. Be sure to show the waistband of your Calvins too – there’s no way anyone else could afford to spend £8 on underpants.
Be part of a large group of very p*ssed people
Summer is the season for lightweights to get hog-whimpering drunk during the day in beer gardens or ‘by the river’. Travel in a large, chaotic group, with some tw*t obstructing the tube doors at every stop and a woman crying about an imaginary problem she won’t remember in the morning.
