Pole-hogging Is The New Manspreading And It Needs To Stop!

Tags: Scoopla, Life, Pole, Hogging, Manspreading

Finding a seat on public transport is tough, so you'd think people would be considerate of how much space they're taking up. But alas, there is now not only manspreading to worry about but pole-hogging too. 

We all know manspreading. Even if you haven't heard the term before, trust us,  you know what it is. 

It's when someone is spreading their legs like no one's business on public transport, leaving minimal space on either side of them. 

Exhibit A: 

And now there is pole-hogging. Again, perhaps you haven't heard the term but you know who we're talking about. 

Picture this: It's 5pm, you've just finished work, you're keen to get home. You hop on the train, hopeful of a seat, but you're realistic and your hopes aren't too high. You realise soon that there's no way in hell you'll be able to sit down, so you look for a pole to grab for balance. And there they are. The pole-hogger. The person who rests their entire body on the pole so no one else can hold it! 

If you're reading this and you're guilty of pole-hogging, TAKE NOTE this is not acceptable behaviour!
