Whether you’re new in town or a seasoned Hongkonger, there’s one thing about this city that never ceases to amaze us—the MTR. More specifically, the people on it. From loved-up couples who are way too keen to show their affection to those who seem to lack volume control when speaking on their phones, are you guilty of any of these annoying acts while travelling on the MTR?

Rush hour commuters and weekend warriors are bound to overload the MTR all days of the week, but just because it’s crowded doesn’t mean you can’t conduct yourself in a respectable manner. Are you prone to committing these obnoxious and annoying acts while travelling on the MTR? Take our interactive quiz and find out!

Be honest: How many of these were you guilty of? Take our quiz again if you’re convinced that you’ve changed your ways, or share this quiz with your friends who need a humorous reminder that swinging from the MTR handholds during rush hour is not an ok thing to do!
