# getting to the platform just as the doors are closing and next one not due for another 12 minutes, then standing in the -4degrees and snow flurries watching your train pull away from the platform.
# screaming children on a packed carriage at rush hour. poor children for being put through rush hour mayhem, poor us having to listen to screaming children all the way home.
# the annoying chinese guy who rudely pushes past everyone (women and children included) just to get in the door first every morning, even though there are plenty of seats to go around at that time of the morning (7am)
# people who walk through stations along corridors and up stairs whilst trying to finish reading their newspaper/book and not looking where they are going or care about the que of people trying to get past them.
# the woman who furiously knits a scarf as a passtime, sending fluff all around the carriage making everyone sneeze.
# the women who try to put on makeup on the journey, again sending puffs of face dust all around making people sneeze.
#mr big on his mobile phone, that thinks everyone on the train wants to hear his plans for this evening, shut up blud, get me dread, bear jokes, yeah yeah scene.
probably a few more will come to me, that's my experience of the last 15 years of getting tubes into central london every day.
So, as a visitor, where do you put your suitcases so that they are within sight and not being stolen. The aisle is clearly no go as they will be a major obstruction. I realise that you will say "don't travel at rush hour" but sometimes it is unavoidable.
No of course it can be unavoidable, I have had to travel on the train to catch a flight in rush hour. The question is how can you seriously think it acceptable to take up 4 seats with luggage, when people are standing
a) There is space between sets of 6 seats for luggage... USE IT!
b) There is overhead storage that can take quite a big case, don't be a lazy ****er! put it up there!
c) Rather than take up 6 seats, sit on the 2 seats by the door, there's space there enough to keep your luggage within sight and not take up seats.
I fail to see how this is unreasonable, and how anyone taking seats for nothing more than luggage is anything but selfish and ignorant.
