Weirdos are like air, they can slide in on any space, even the most cramped up Delhi Metros. Though, Delhi is globally renowned for its wide specimen of freaks who can be cute, nerdy and scary at the same time, they sure add a little entertainment to an otherwise boring Delhi Metro trip!
If you haven’t found them as yet, you sure will spot them with our help…
Here are a few weirdos you are bound to encounter at least once in your lifetime while traveling in a Delhi Metro:
1. The loud chatterbox
You know they are around you when you hear them discuss the intricate details of their lives in over 200 decibels in a metro. These people love to talk on any topic without a pinch of consciousness about their surroundings or people.

2. The singer
These people enter and leave a 2 hour journey with their headphones stuck to their ears at all times. They sometimes even get carried away with their favorite track that a sudden burst of a verse from Eminem with the F’s and the A’s in the urban slang dictionary leaving them flustered (or not).
3. The giggler
The avid Whatsapp user has a library of pervy jokes. They keep staring at the phone and giggling. This might get you curious and tempted to get one glance on to their screen. Don’t be surprised if you read something you weren’t supposed to and blush.
4. Mr. Tech-Tee
This guy has ALL the equipment you can see in an electronics store. Right from the latest smartphone, smart watch to the shoes that are fitted with…wait, wtf is that!! He carries his swag with him wherever he goes. If he sells all his equipment, he might be able to buy himself a decent car that can rid us lesser Metro mortals of his tech-tete-a-tete.
5. The old revolutionary
This species always travels in a herd. They know exactly what is wrong with the entire nation with the names of people who are responsible. They consider themselves to be the voice of the nation while chopping vegetables in a metro and believe that they have the potential to change the situation.
6. The eternal starer
This person irrespective of their gender is an eternal stare-r. OK, so he or she has got your attention, you adjust your clothes, you clear your throat and you even change your seat but you aren’t going anywhere out of their sight until the end of your journey.
7. The struggling parent
The parent who always brings his/her kids when traveling by metro can be seen trying hard to make nice with people whom the kid might be disturbing. The kid will often be found crawling on the bar, pulling someone’s clothes or bags or just crying feeling claustrophobic.
8. Mr. Sticky and sweaty
This does not even NEED a description, does it? If you care about the health of your nose, you might just end up using a deodorant on their armpits and sneak out with an apology as a favour to humanity.
9. Mr. Pervert Perverson
This guy has a Ph.D in being a pervert. He shall find all spots on either your shoulder or your butt to rest his pelvis. Each halt = a creepy smile of ‘fraandship’ in the name of the ever-pushing crowd on the metro.
Suggested read: If boyfriends were really honest while arguing…
10. The selfies kings and queens
Thanks to Instagram, this species is now omnipresent. They ensure that the world beyond the metro compartment knows about their whereabouts and also their Dior liner.
