I am also one of the million people commuting to work every day using public transport. And I am always amazed what conversations I can listen and what people do share so openly in the public. Sometimes I have eye-contact with fellow traveller and we have to smile about the situation. Interestingly those people seem to not realize that sometimes nearly the entire carriage is listening their conversation and vary between curiosity and embarressment. And it´s really great if reception will become bad as the people start then to speak even louder maybe to scream over the distance?
One morning this summer I decided to start my “Tube diary” and share the best conversation I overheard. I will always keep adding them on the top so you can easily follow the updates of my diary.
