    Seems like you manage to get a whole carriage to yourself....

    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    ― Marcus Aurelius

    People not moving down into the carriage and using all available space when there are people trying to get on. Selfish twunts!

    We know it's you so we aren't moving!

    One of my hates is people with rucksacks on their backs e.g. both straps who block the door.

    I once have a guy a massive push out of the way after someone else repeatedly said "Excuse me please" because he didn't move. Another passenger thanked me. The guy turned around and only seeing women didn't say or do anything.

    I was down in That London for a couple of months earlier this year.

    Was pleasantly surprised to discover just how remarkably co-operative rush hour tube users are - for the most part.

    There were couple of times I 'assisted' people comply with the unwritten rules - the dickhead who got on before everybody got off, and blocked me from getting off. He found himself unexpectedly back on the platform - the city type who wouldn't do that little shuffle to make room for those who had just boarded. He soon got fed up trying to maintain 'his' space and support my bodyweight as I leaned into him, and somebody who wouldn't move over/ step off the train for a few seconds to let people off. He found himself on the platform, too.

    Fun times!

    I thought nowadays all you had to do was speak foreign...
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Yes, but maybe that's just that you have a face that looks like it needs slapping
