Would you get on this train or wait for next? Even if the next train is 3 hours from now? I don't think I would ever be in such a hurry...

I don't understand, can anybody explain this behavior to me?

Here is the description of the video: Oshiya, or "pusher", is an informal Japanese term for a worker who stands on the platform of a railway station during the morning and evening rush hours, and pushes people onto the train. This video is a good example of just how crowded it gets on Japanese trains.

Kind of looks like a fun job- pushing people into a tiny silver box all day.
