This is when you know that a Norwegian bus is full
and that you need to stand
Norwegians value their personal space
as much as their opportunities to be alone
They will travel alone to work
Rather than organising to commute with colleagues
It is much more efficient and practical
And you do not need to talk to anyone
people may rather stand than sit next to someone in a bus
or attempt by all means not to step into an elevator which is occupied
Confined places quickly become uncomfortable in Norway
Norwegians need a lot of space to feel comfortable
