Today's Metro Moment - Monday mornings suck

The free newspaper Metro is obviously on a roll with the "Commuter Sinners" idea and it looks like it will be a regular feature each Monday. Sadly though today was one of those very obvious questionnaires about how you judge yourself as to whether you're a saint or a sinner. There were only five questions which are all to be expected and stuff that I'd been highlighting on my
tube etiquette page years ago.

All had those answers where you can really easily fiddle the results (if you're remotely bothered to do the quiz in the first place) - you know - Mostly zero's - you are a saint, Mostly 10's you are a sinner. Come on guys you've got to do better than this.

I found the section on why we hate Monday mornings much more amusing:

"Reason Two: We briefly forgot what it was like to be in close proximity to other people's body fluids in a space even David Blaine would have found cramped. Is it our imagination or is public transport even more obscenely full on Monday mornings as the compulsive sickie brigade avoid an obvious long weekend?"
