Whenever people are getting off a train car, bus or
other mode of public transportation, let the disembarking people get off
first before trying to get on. It
is illogical to try to get on before they leave simply because you would

Then you get on.

not play sound devices such as radios, etc such that it disturbs others.
No matter what type of music you like, you can be sure there is
someone else who does not like it. Non-musical
material, such as lectures, etc. can be very distracting to others who are
