The only people who will watch The Commuter are people on planes with broken seat-TVs that will only play The Commuter. And even then, I bet most of them choose to do literally anything else, up to and including crash the plane.
In Russia, when you want to leave a bus while sitting near a window, you're expected to ask your neighbour if he leaves on this station too, and he will let you go if he doesn't. Same applies to crowded metro trains if you're standing far from doors.
When leaving the bus thanking the bus driver is compulsory, failing to do so would result in your citizenship being revoked.
Spanien vs Finnland:
Living in the south of Spain, this only makes up for like 5-10% of interactions. I've had bus rides where 2 people who didn't know each other started openly talking about a topic only to have more strangers join in on the conversation.
In Finland you startle people if you say hello. I’ve had it happen multiple times where another person is caught off guard to the point where they just mumble awkwardly. Though usually you get ignored.
Its actually super cool in social situations. Nobody comes up to you and tells you that you shouldn’t call on a tram/bus or anything, even though literally everyone there hates you. They all just hate you silently, which is just the way I like it!
