So when we were growing up, we’d make trips to Hong Kong to visit family and friends, and it was always quite the trip for us kids. It was such a different world for us, especially a few things like the subway system that actually worked, and was practical to use all the time. During rush hour in Hong Kong, there were additional platform attendants whose job it was to push people into the trains as well as prevent overcrowding. We called them “sardine packers” and they did their job well.
However, this video seems to take it to a new level. I think it’s from Japan, but I’m not absolutely certain.
This is sadly funny, and borderline dangerous. I can’t imagine there are a lot of people in Japan with agoraphobia who ride the public transportation. I can’t imagine anyone who rides public transportation in a high density area like Japan or Hong Kong could have agoraphobia.
