This paper reports observational data recorded on three journeys on London's public transport network in 2004. The data is reported as experience in an approach that attempts, in the phenomenological vein, to bring the incidents to life for the reader. The strong subjectivity in this approach to the write up of data is then tempered by a more objective analysis of the three events. In this, the paper explores a link between the highly subjective, micro-level data, and the structuring propensities of the market. The 'marketisation' of emotion is argued to have structuring effects on morality as it is constructed and manipulated at an individual level.
