      Many stations in Japan, Taiwan and China have "Platform Attendants" whose job is to pack sardines and quickly and efficiently as possible.

      And "please mind the platform gap" !

          That's important because coat tails are untimely connected to sardines.

          My vote for the most polite platform attendants goes not to Japan, but Hong Kong, which has an assortment of gentle & polite part-timers who push and shove as a last resort, something that can't be said for all the little grannies rinding the trains.

          MTRC customer service rocks.
