Default Nail Painting / Varnish

Does CIE have a policy to stop ladies (and gents) from painting their finger and toe nails on the trains? Due to the confined unventilated nature of trains this shouldn't be allowed.

Airlines have a policy on this, and I have seen them tell people to stop it on flights.

I have often experience nail painting on Irish trains often, always by ladies and normally the person gets very annoyed with me when I ask them to stop - most ignore me.

Could only be 19

So it is illegal to carry anything with you that is
Quote:
any inflammable, explosive or corrosive gas, spirit, liquid, substance, or matter, or any article or thing which is or may become dangerous to any person or property.
However its fine if its for personal use and suitably contained.

The trains are fully ventilated, its not so long ago smoking was allowed. It more an issue of a growing portion of the population having no respect to those around them, be it doing make up on the train (fun to watch when it goes wrong), or listening to something not worthy of the title music turned up way to loud.

Most people are put out be such smells.

@drumcondra_commuter I agree.

@Mark Gleeson while I agree with the sentiment that a "growing portion of the population [have] no respect to those around them" I hardly think putting on make-up is the worst offence. While I personally find putting on the full face on the train in the morning a little bit lazy (get up earlier!) and maybe even a little gross I have come across far more antisocial behaviour. I certainly find nothing wrong with women touching up though, this is not the 1890s!

Nail varnish, as a smell, is rather obnoxious to most people.

While they may giggle or roll their eyes, nobody is overly objecting to someone putting on concealer or the like.

I have sat next to people with worse body odour than varnish odour. It's called public transport for a reason.

Our office manager just sent out a reminder of our firm's no scent policy. Needless to say it's rare to be as quite in close quarters in an office as it can be on some public transport services.
