Passenger Scum

I am really getting pissed off with the selfish bastards that use the tube.

Every day I have to ask people to move in when they are blocking the doors making the train look full when there is lots of room inside. They look at you like you have just asked to borrow their wife. I usually either shove them in or squeeze past them and show them how much room there really is. I have been known to say "see there's room for a bloody juggler in here" but then everyone of course looks at you in that embarrassed way like you are a nutter.

Then there are the rucksacks and bags that people insist on wearing on the tube rather than placing it between their feet. They shove you about with no regard. I am trying to come up with something to combat it like pinching a girls arse when her handbag shoves me and saying "oh sorry I thought you were touching me up so I thought I would have a go" or a little razor to slit open the bottom of blokes rucksacks so that everything inside falls out.

As ever though its the music coming from peoples earphones that pisses me off most but far short of giving them evil looks or pretending to talk to them by just moving your lips there is not much that can be done.

I am thinking of getting some little stickers made though so that I can slip them onto peoples backs or bags. Something subtle like "I'm a Twat"
Designs or suggestions welcome

Happy New Year

Happy New Year.

LU were right on time with the fare increases although I cant complain as I think my weekly Oyster has only gone up by about 20p a week. Mind you the trains have been crap all week with a service akin to a Sunday.

Got off to a good start on passengerwatch today. I was at Westminster waiting to get onto the Jubille line and when the doors opened I stood aside to let those disembarking get off. Imagine by surprise when an ugly bearded monster in a puffa jacket with a rucksack (natch) came pushing off and barged past me. He looked back to see my reaction so I shouted "are you ok fatty" He went from thinking he was clever to facing the facts. Fat, Ugly, Hirsute and Rude. I got on the train where of course everyone was looking at me but I couldnt stop chuckling to myself. What Fun!!
