    How can someone accept to be treated like that? Even if it's to go to work. I would prefer to sit unemployed than to go through that. People treated like sheep...

    Well this was incredibly appalling to watch. Something tells me this is routine though. "Another day".

    Exactly. And that's what's disturbing. It looks like it's the normal thing to happen...

    It's in Japan, get your fact straight. If you are not sure just say Asia.

    Yup. It's Japan.
    Many urban metros around the world are uncomfortably crowded at rush hour. But Japan is typically the worst.

    My humble advice to OP: go travel the world and by the world, I mean the world not Europe and North America. I am optimistic that you will have an second opinion on your statement when you come back.

    It's not only in Asia. They do that in Paris too. It feels terrible, and it's even worse than in Japan because here we've got the pickpockets.

    I'm so glad I own a car and am able to drive anywhere I need, including work. In the luxury and comfort of my own car with the music at any volume I please...the climate controlled exactly how I want it and all the room I need for extra bags, food, stuff, etc.

    Wouldn't trade it for that, at all.

    I'd prefer squeezing into a train for a few minutes to sitting in traffic for an hour or two.


    well I dont sit in traffic lol.
    besides, could u imagine squeezing onto them during cold and flu season? helllll no for me!

    wow. That is definitely one of my worst nightmares come true.

    Stuffed in a train like a can of tuna? No thank you.

    I think it's Japan, too. Lol, this is exactly why I did not like living in San Francisco catching Bart/Muni train to work to downtown Montgomery everyday ! That lasted about 3 years. Call me old fashion but I freaking love my car and bigger road/space to drive around, I hate the smell of a lot of people, odor and public transportation. I swear I got nauseous and threw up a couple times after I got back from the train/bart at home. I rather stuck in LA traffic and just listening to Coldplay or something while moving slowly on the freeway.

    I think it's more of a cultural thing. In some Asian countries, people can act incredibly rude and just cut you off like that (kinda like New Yorkers), but according to them, that's just normal unlike us laid back Southern Californians who expect a lot of courtesy and excellent customer service. Hell, like nobody takes the metro train here.

    Uh oh, did I ruffle some feathers now? icon_rolleyes.gif

    *OMG, the Chinese are coming, the Chinese are coming* in the Olympic Beijing/PF Chang episode. icon_biggrin.gif China has like what 1.5 billion people now, what do you expect right?

    I've spent a lot of time in Japan and although the trains can get pretty crowded, they're normally not as bad as in this video.

    Also, the trains literally run every two minutes, I don't see why some of these people couldn't just wait for the next train and be the first in line.

    It's better than each one of them driving a car and spewing tons of carbon into the air. Stockholm is ugly at rush hour but definitely never that bad... swedes are sufficiently antisocial that they would rather wait for the next train than stuff themselves in, lol

    datscarf saidHow do we know this is from China?
    It sounds like they were speaking Japanese and the station was overcrowded at morning-time.
    OP is racist.
