Women shouldn’t apply their make up on the train as a sudden jolt could mean that they scratch their corneas, experts have warned
Applying lipstick to your lips might scratch your cornea.
Tomorrow, how applying underarm deodorant could produce earache.
Women shouldn’t apply makeup on the train for the same reason men shouldn’t shave on the train – it’s awfully uncouth.
My wife has a wonderful story of a woman on a bus in Japan putting on lipstick. A sudden jolt of the bus drove the lipstick into a nostril and she couldn’t get it out!
They would have to be farting about with their eyelashes, mascara etc to be anywhere near their eye. On a moving train. What kind of female fool would do that?
It’s not just on a train. The number of women I see doing their make-up whilst driving (not just stopped at lights) is scary.
What sort of women would do that?
I’ve seen them touching up the eyeliner whilst driving.
Totally different set of priorities.
Bah, that’s nuffin. Girls in Bangkok apply their makeup sitting side sadle on a motorbike taxi threading through traffic.
You have obviously never taken a train, tube, bus or tram in the morning rush hour. I once saw a girl apply false eye lashes between Harrow and Wembley Central.

“Everything that kills me makes me feel alive.”

It might be nail stripper, now you mention it. The same method of application. I’m too busy gagging and passing out to notice the subtle difference between application and removal.
These women who apply makeup on the train- they get really shrieky when you borrow some.
