The locals in Germany along the Rhine were the worst I saw for this.

Hogwash. Come ride transit with me and I'll teach you the urban skill of looking decrepit to get a seat.

If that doesn’t work, my daughter can show how to project the “right attitude” – so people won’t want to sit in the adjacent seat.

She had to commute to Manhattan for her last year of high school (from Westchester suburbs), and her return was early rush hour. Men in business suits drinking and hitting on her. Toward the end of the year DW and I were in the city so we stopped by, picked her up and came home together. When she sat down in the train she transformed and even I didn’t want to sit next to her.

Sometimes there’s a legitimate reason.

Absolutely, on the rare occasions when I'm the first to take a double seat, I unconsciously pick the person who will get the other seat.
