16 Subway Experiences Glasgow Students Will Understand
Travelling on the Glasgow subway is not the most comfortable form of transport.
1. It’s Monday morning – 8.58am
You run down the escalators – practically breaking your neck to get to Kelvinbridge – then boom! The doors close.
2. When using the ticket machine takes up more time than a ride around the inner circle and back.
3. When the subway stops for a suspicious amount of time between Cowcaddens and St. George’s Cross.
4. The awkward eye contact with the person sitting opposite from you never gets easier.
5. The moment of panic when your shoe falls off on the stairs at peak time on Bridge Street.
6. When you fall asleep and end up in Govan.
Where am I?
7. The rush hour ride often feels like a bush tucker trial.
8. Making life decisions is often a part of your short journey.
9. When someone takes out a book (for the whole two minute journey) and proceeds to read it while squashed against the nearest door.
10. When the train stops abruptly and a stranger falls on top of you.
11. How you feel like taking a shower the minute you emerge from St Enoch’s.
12. Juggling books, a laptop and several bags becomes a daily struggle.
13. The one time you actually manage to get a seat at Buchanan Street.
14. When you get off at Hillhead and it’s permanently raining.
Why is that?
15. When there is an “under construction” sign at St Enoch’s.
16. The best day to take the subway is Tuesday.
Is that the Stylist magazine I see?
