Applying Makeup in the Subway
Every month, Tokyo Metro posts a new subway manner poster in their station as I wrote about last year in a blog post titled Tokyo Subway Manner Posters. For some strange reason, I look forward to the first day of every month when the latest poster appears (yea, my life is boring). You can find it here, along with all the older posters if you are interested.
Well, this month (November 2009, below left) features a reminder to apply makeup at home, not on the trains, a similar poster appeared over a year ago (May 2008, below right).
Anyway, below are two pictures that I took with my cell phone camera – I guess they didn’t read the posters.
Have you seen women applying their makeup in the subway or trains in your neck of the woods? If yes, is it a common occurrence? Personally, it does not bother me, but then I am probably either sleeping or watching a podcast on my iTouch.
