I used to be scared of the MTR when I was younger - I think the thought of being trapped underground really scared me coupled with the thought of ghosts hanging around in an empty station (that sort of thing). I still feel pretty unsafe around the tube especially at nite but it's alright mostly during the day time. What I really hate about the Underrgound in London is the fact that you get packed like rats in a cage but generally, the service is almost always reliable.
Since studying in London I've grown accustomed to it at peak hours (before 9am) and I've noticed that I quite enjoy the commuting journey - sometimes there isn't really anything better than travelling to one destination whilst listening to your iPod at full volume.

So, are there any stories on the London Underground you would like to share about the London Underground? I've got one - well not really a story but anyway - in Leicester Square Station, there are a few buskers towards the Northern Line entrance - what do you think of them? There are 5 in total and they always come in a set routine. There's this guy on the saxaphone, a black jazz bassist, a female piaonist, a white male electric guitarist and a male white acoustic guitar player. I really like the bassist and I bet he's a UGer - so if you're him, HI!

If anyone remembers this clip - taken at Holborn Station where I get off:

It was on the news. He was dismissed unsurprisingly.

As the doors were closing, and the train about to go this guy ran up to it and stuck his head through the doors.

Doors opened, he got on.

Result.

Never happened to me and I sure that doesn't in the future. It always amazes me when someone gets through whilst the doors are closing

I once had a little jam session with two complete strangers with guitars on the circle line at about one in the morning. That is easily the weirdest thing thats happened to me on the tube.

He didn't look anything like this did he?

I hate the tube during peak hours, its not so bad when i have a seat and there aren't idiots on board, i always love managing to jump onto the train just as the doors are about to close, it makes me feel like James Bond.

I have seen some odd things on the train, this one time me and a friend were on the way back from a gig, there were some girls standing there on the train, all quite hot, i looked away for a second and heard something spill, i thought it was just some drink falling on the floor or something, but then when i turned around this girl was throwing up everywhere, everyone freaked out, one guy at the other end of the carriage went "what the FUCK", luckily my stop was the next one.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

Actually I forgot the time that the Anonomous protests against Scientology were going on and I got onto a tube train where I was the only one not wearing a guy fawkes mask. That was bizzare.

I've seen her more than once. Or at least someone who fits the description. I'm pretty sure its a stuffed rabbit by the way.

Some stupid immigrant fat lady thought it would be clever to practically sit on me on a packed up tube, and to top it all off, she wasnt holding on to anything, and was holding her coffee in the most retarded fashion you have ever seen.

I thought she was going to burn me :O

One day I will keep a look out for her when I'm in the area. It's just so bizarre how we all know these things in the real whereas we don't know each other personally. It makes me think just how small the world is.

Nope, she was pretty tidy and well spoken, clearly addressing/talking to the whole carriage.

The other day a guy managed to get in but his bag, which contained a brand new pair of expensive shoes did not. Ended up with the guy on the platform taking apart the box and feeding it in bit by bit

I love the tube. Hate the people though.

This one time I came from Northolt at about 1am, last tube.
When I got one there was about 3 people on the tube.
The tube got to White City and hundreds of people piled on. It was like a party! everyone was drinking and dancing (no music though).
The tube kicked us off at bank and a good 100 of us walked across London Bridge together.
It was a really good friendly vibe. Made me proud of London

edit: OH MAN! how could I forget! I was on the overhead from Charing Cross to London Bridge about 12am.

There were 2 lesbians behind me kissing. I'm a fairly mature man and I've seen hotter chicks do more than that (in porn).

Anyway, after a few mins I hear 'hmm, ohhh, *heavy breathing*'
I couldn't resist, I looked around and one of them had her jeans around her knees and the other one was fingering her.
The half naked one was hot too! the other one looked a bit like a guy.

But yeah, bricks were shat

I'll tell you what really pisses me off on a tube. It annoys me when someone leans against the poll in the middle of a full carriage so those who need something to hold onto don't get a chance to.

Now the subject has been raised, all my experiences on the tube are coming flooding back.

Once I was on the way back from a dance in Hammersmith with a couple of friends and we were completely alone in the carriage apart from one guy who we recognised from the dance so we got chatting. While we were talking he pulled out a blunt wrap and just started smoking it on the train. Since it was late at night and there was absolutely nobody else about we ended up rolling a couple spliffs of our own and hotboxing the carriage with a complete stranger.

If you want there to be more, we could always fantasize together?

I personally don't want to, and would rather forget about his/her supposed desire for me.

I hate the London Underground.
Love the song by the Amateur Transplants though.

I personally love the buskers here in Norwich, last week I saw a few guys with a saxophone, double bass and a guitar. They were great.
