Commuting by train

December 18, 2008

Travelling into London by train is something I do occasionally and the microcosm that is the commuter train is always interesting. There are never enough seats and people protect their personal space with a variety of techniques; there’s the bag on the seat next to them, the sitting slightly sideways to give the appearance of taking up 2 seats, and a new one I saw this morning, sitting with laptop on knee with a notebook on the adjacent seat; the subliminal message being that to ask to sit would be disturbing their work as well as invading their space. As they say there’s nowt as weird as folk.
