The Paris transportation authority have released a hilarious politeness manual for people travelling on the city’s subway service.

The manual, called Politeness Manual For The Modern Traveller, includes 12 commandments travellers should follow to ensure they and other passengers can travel in comfort.

The rules are split into four categories: Helpfulness, courtesy, manners and politeness.

The guidelines include not playing music too loud, not staring at beautiful women and a duty carrying old ladies’ bags up the stairs for them.

The booklet, which can be downloaded from the transportation authority’s website – but unfortunately hasn’t been translated into English – is illustrated with a series of playful drawings.

The rules themselves have been written in poetic language to match the illustrations.

One rule, encouraging people not to expose smelly armpits to the whole carriage, reads: “Like a king penguin, to keep one’s arms by one’s sides on very hot days and grab the bottom of the post, not the very top.”

Another points out that “the huge crossed out cigarette on the platform is not a work of art but a ban on smoking.”

Commuters are also reminded that not every intrusion on personal space is deliberate and suggests travellers shouldn’t “provoke a duel with the cavalier who just squashed your toes by mistake.”

The commandments in the manual were selected from more than 2,000 submitted by commuters.
