July Metro Poster



I don't see these types of people on the LA subway, yapping about the great deals they got while shopping. Mostly homeless who pile their nasty bags on the the seats next to them. But nobody want't to sit next to them anyways.

That guy in the lower left looks really pissed. What do you think he's thinking?

I think those two ladies should be more worried about the crazy zombie lady behind them.

    It looks like these two people are your wife and her friend yapping about sale item. Right?!

  3. I've never seen people do this on trains here - not to say it doesn't happen. That's not sarcasm either.

  4. Maybe they are running out of ideas.

  5. There are only so many "rules" people are breaking. I think they should focus on the major problems and make new signs for them.

  7. There is a little article about these posters in today's Japan Today that you might like to read.

    One of the comments over there said a good problem to address would be when people try to get on the train before everyone has gotten off. I've seen that happen a few times and it's pretty annoying.

  8. Your subways in LA sound suspiciously like the buses back in seattle (homeless, piling bags, etc).

    As for Japan, working in the office for 70/week probably creates a hoard of zombies that must be fended off. :-/

  9. John, that happens every day here in LA on the train. People in LA are either really dumb or really rude. So many push their way on to the train before letting people off.

    Nihonshukyo, I guess maybe that is common in many or most big American cities. Those posters do make it seem like Tokyo is full of zombies.
