A manner poster on the wall of a Tokyo subway station urges commuters not to be in such a hurry.

These posters often seem to have a bias and depict the young being ill-mannered as older people look on in horror.

The overwhelming reality in my experience is the rushing and pushing on to trains or fake sleeping in reserved seating is done by your standard middle-aged salary-man in his suit.

Another poster that will be ignored.

Good luck with that.

The kids do not look Asians, that means...

Certainly not working in kasumigaseki station where adults of all ages run to connections.

Why are so many of these manner posters needed?

5 ( +5 / -0 )

Because most people have no manners. I also find it highly misleading and irresponsible to make it look like the kids are doing this when all I see every day is middle-aged or older salary men. Somehow they get a free pass.

...that means you have a victim complex.

"Ame you" means "Stop it!", no galloping, rushing [when] you see it's crowded . . .moreover, stay calm and maintain elbow room on the train . . . .

Man, that's some strong lipstick!

Because manners are important and every year people here get worse and worse.
