Knocksense: A local content and recommendations platform

Lucknow Metro has become quite a rage and while some have already adjusted to their new routes, many people still continue to ride just for the heck of it! Metro has made commute way easier than it was and frankly, we’ve observed way too much already.

So here’s our take on 7 types of people you’ll find in a metro here in Lucknow- trust me, if not now, all of these points will be relatable to you soon enough!

(Tab duaa’on mei na sahi, copyrights mei yaad rakhna!)

The Bibliophile!

You’ll see these readers sitting in a corner, with maybe their earphones on and they’ll be reading anything and everything to avoid human contact or just to look aesthetic!

The Leaning Tower of Pisa!

This kind of people just don’t understand the concept of privacy! They’ll be swaying, slanting and tilting, just to reach the perfect angle from where they can read or hear gossips about other people- although completely irrelevant to their lives!

*massive eye-rolls*

The Manspreader!

Manspreading is a cringey habit which is viral everywhere- buses, cabs, autos and now, even metros! So when you see a man taking too much of leg-room, just stare back at them and ahem-ahem your way of getting your space! If the guy isn’t really responsive, just tell him politely to move his mehfil somewhere else!

The PDA envoy! (Public Display of Anger)

These people will just push you out of their way and show-off their rOckY atTiTuDe just because they’re pissed! Overly-loud and dramatic, these people have no concept of social manners. They’ll just exist, without saying even a sorry- next time, instead of ignoring, make them apologise.

That one annoying kid!

Every ride has that ONE annoying kid who cries till our ears hurt and brain explodes from the urge of shutting them up! In our defence, we just stare back and make weird faces till they look away or get distracted enough to shut up!

Yawn. Yawn. Boom- we've got a sleeper!

There’s always that passenger whose yawns are addictive AF and within a blink, they’re snoring away to glory!

Pro-tip: If you’re next to them, be careful about the shoulder drool!

The Music Maverick!

You can always spot these low-key DJs banging their heads to beats, while not giving enough damns about the others around! Some of them, even play songs on their speakers and honestly, that’s a tad too much when your music tastes don’t match.

Do you want to add to the list? Are you enjoying the metro-life yet? Comment below!
