I travel a lot on the trains in Germany, mainly from Marburg to Frankfurt where I work. Compared to British Rail the Deutsche Bahn are fantastic, both in punctuality and price, but one thing that really annoys me is the manners of fellow travellers.

Commuters like myself are generally very well behaved, it's the casual traveller that seem to lack manners, especially when trying to board a train. How difficult is it to realise that it works better to let people off the train first, before trying to barge your way through. Normally I say something or I accidentally elbow the offender in some fleshy region.......but today I was totally gobsmacked......the perpetrator was an Nun! - needless to say I kept my mouth shut, and kept my elbow to myself
