An Australian overseas student has been ‘traumatised’ over the antics of commuters on a major European city’s public transport. 

Footage of the behaviour was captured by Max Bennett, who posted his commute experience while living in Paris, France to social media on Wednesday.

The vision, which included a woman smearing cheese on a baguette with her ID card, went viral, drawing both laughs and disgust.

Mr Bennett filmed locals on a train and at a metro station as he commuted to his classes at art and design school Parsons in the centre of the French capital. 

He said the metro in the iconic capital was ‘off the rails’, describing a lady sitting next to him as she casually smeared cheese on a baguette with an ID card.

She is seen using the card to dig into a soft cheese wrapped in paper on her lap and wiping it on a piece of bread, licking her fingers.  

It is common to see Parisians chowing down on trains, as the city has a relaxed policy on consuming food on its public transport. 

The student then filmed commuters passing fashion mannequins through Paris turnstiles as he took a train to a kickboxing workout. 

The ‘peckish’ TikTokker even took to a metro carriage and buttered bread with a card in honour of the woman with the baguette and found the utensil ‘very effective’.

The video was captioned: ‘My day as an Australian in Paris getting traumatised on the metro.’

‘I’m a fellow Aussie living in Paris and even after 12 years the metro still blows my mind – yesterday there was a guy wearing no pants,’ a commenter said. 

‘Buttering a baguette with your ID at the metro is beyond unhinged,’ said another. 

‘I highly recommend using a bicycle around Paris, been here for 15 years and the metro is awful,’ one online user said. 

‘Haha … as a Parisian I am howling, disgusted but not surprised’, another quipped.
