Travelling by Tube...
...which I have done routinely since my teens, is rather depressing at present because there are so many rather horrible advertisments. There is one for men's perfume which is vaguely sinister in its attempt to blur sexes so you can't tell if those pictured are male or female. And its huge and somehow attempts to fill all the space so even if you move further down the platform it still leers. There are several that are simply vulgar and sort of pornographic. I tend to read most of the time when travelling but it's annoying on a platform when you have to be alerrt to secure a place as the train arrives - the the nasty ads are omnipresent.
