Swag Note: This post 17 Types of People You Will See in the Metro Every Now and Then is from our daily observation. We didn’t mean any discrimination. I hope you can relate

Most of us have traveled in the metro at some point or other. Metro has made our lives easy, we can avoid all the hustle bustle and traffic to reach a place in stipulated time. Plus AC is a bonus in the scorching heat. Being a daily commuter I have observed many kinds of personalities in a metro. Some people are annoying, some are sweet. So I decided to compile a list of such people. Have a look-

Types of People You Will See in the Metro


1. The loudspeaker-

Dedicated to all the aunties talking on the phone. It is their duty to inform all the people sitting near them about their whereabouts.


2. The peeping tom-
