So, I find a seat and start reading. Sometimes I can't find a seat, and I read standing up, if the train is not packed with people.
The metro, though, arrived at my station before I could finish my chapter. But I want to finish that chapter!!! I get out, stay on the platform, either standing or sitting on the benches, and finish my chapter. Then I go about my business.
