I’m ranty today. Grrrrrrrr.
People can be so inconsiderate. On the train this morning a guy tried to make the girl next to me get up for the 15 minutes it takes to get from Banbury to Oxford because she was in his reserved seat. I told her to stay and gave him my seat instead, but was irritated by his complete lack of chivalry.
And it wasn’t just that isolated incident. In the seats in front of us there was almost a bust up when a girl who’d been on the train one stop refused to move because she was there first. Waiting for the bus people were pushing and shoving to get on first. On the train home there were lots of people forced to stand because people were sitting with their bags or coats beside them. Kate picked me up at the station, and in the car park no-one would let her reverse out. Then we spent an hour beside the speaker phone waiting for a phone call we’d scheduled for 7.30pm – a phone call that never came.
Seriously, what is with people? Where do they get off being so damned rude?
