5: Do offer your seat to pregnant women, but be sure she is pregnant! Having a beer belly does not entitle someone to your cushion. A good way to determine if she is pregnant is to reach out and hold your hand on her belly--if you feel kicks, she's probably pregnant. If not, she's just overweight and you've got some 'splainin to do.
4: Don't have your phone's ringer on. If you do and it rings, don't ignore it and expect us to think it's the guy's next to you. We know who the asshole is.

"They should give the illusion of being three seats, while only fitting two comfortably."
2: When you're on the platform and the train pulls up with a ton of people are crowding to get off, don't stand in front of the doors forcing everyone to depart single-file. You'll get on faster if you get out of the way rather than sausaging your way in.

Quick Rodney Dangerfield joke for you--nothing to do with trains, it just popped into my head. "I have no luck, are you kiddin'? I went to a Chinese restaurant, opened my fortune cookie--inside was the guy next to me's check!" [laughter] "I said, 'Buddy, I got your check!' He said, 'Thanks.'" Love that one, but it's all in the delivery--Google it and find a clip. Anyway, that was today's rant about commuting. Expect more whiny complaints about my commute in the future.
