The MTR is a world-class public transport system. The passengers – not so much. Leading to everyday frustrations, with the occasional moment of madness.
Case one - trying to get off a crowded train. Doors open. I say “Mh Goi”, but no-one moves, so I have to force my way out through a crowd of bodies.
Case two - waiting to get off a very un-crowded East Rail train heading for Lo Wu. Doors open. Two passengers try to push past me. I stand my ground.
One of them actually fell down into the gap between the train and the platform. I’m still not sure how they managed to do that, but I hope they had a safe journey back home.
