So, there I was taking the train home from work, as you do.

Train was empty - like REALLY empty, 14 people on a 200 seater....

So I'm sitting there on my phone tying up some loose ends before signing off for the day, and I had some paperwork sitting to the left of me.

Fairly engrossed in my conversation, I feel my paperwork landing in my lap.

I ended my call abruptly, and turned round to see this woman sitting beside me!

I gave her my best WTF>!>! look, to which she responded:

"YOU HAVE A TERRIBLE ATTITUDE!!!!"???

I was like, out of there, and got up, she then shouted at the top of her voice:

"YOU'RE SO RUDE"!!!!

I was like, yeah, you too biatch.

SO..... the question I would like to ask here is this:

Was this a breach of public transport etiquette?

and

Would you be freaked out if this happened to you?

u shud have shaken ur tic-tacs at her!

had none, otherwise I would.

Gotta say, was pretty freaked out by it!

I mean, why would you sit beside a complete stranger on an EMPTY train?!?!? :?

maybe she fancied you or is that way too unlikely???

She was like...40.

Oh, and I'm not you. :p
#7
slap her and say you smell and go to another seat
#8
I find, on public transport, some people seem to go out of their way to start an arguement, like they've had a bad day and they're venting....
Just roll with it (replace WTF look with whatever look!!)
#9
Maybe she was trying to start a conversation and hope it went somewhere.... But yes it is rude to pick up someones paperwork and plonk yourself in the seat when the train is EMPTY !!

You shouldnt have let her shout at you though! You should have asked her why the hell she did it :giggle:

WOW great insight into how you actually are! Was your paperwork spread over 3 seats, did you have your feet up, what were you "talking" about? Do you have an angry face?
Was she old or young?

Regardless I think you're funny, well........ online anyway,lol:-D


I didn't even take a table seat, it was me on the window seat and some papers on my left. wouldn't have taken up a seat like that on a busy train ,but it was empty.

And I NEVER put my feet up on seats on a train, I leave that to the neds.

And what are you on about, insight?

Where was the train going from and to?
#15
Despite the fact it was an almost empty train and she could have sat anywhere, some people are so pathetic that they'll go out of their way to make their point known. She probably has an issue with people on phones when the train is packed (which is fair enough as having a stranger shouting in your ear and occasionally flinging over some stray spit whilst talking isn't pleasant) but she isn't intelligent enough to actually realise the difference between that scenario and someone using a phone on an empty train.

You should have asked her why she was so desperate to sit next to you when the train was practically empty. Would have made for an interesting journey home at least :-D

I was kinda too freaked out by it in the 1st place, plus I had other things to be getting on with other than conversing with a mad harpy.

...perhaps she was doing us all a favour and trying to attract your attention to the very unsociable attitude you seem to have going on at the moment?
#23
Did you say anything in your phonecall that might have offended her? She sounds like a whack job.
You get some weirdos around. My friend was using her phone on the triain once and this guy dropped a note in her lap as he left saying "Not everyone wants to hear your conversation. Call me if you want me to talkr". We couldn't work out if he was into her or just mad at her for using her mobile.
#24
Ask your mates if they think you shout when your using your mobile. One of my mates does and I tell him all the time. It's embarrassing.

I was barely speaking, as I was listening to some updates on the next days work. Plus I do have consideration for other folks and there wasn't anyone else within about half a carriage of me.

Fair do's. She sounds like a mentalist.

By the way where is GLC-BRR? I don't want to stalk you but it may help with character stereotyping.

I would have told her she had 5 seconds to apologise or you were going to slap her good-looking!

I can't abide rude people, but regardless of the situation you don't talk to someone else like that. Even if there had been nowhere else to sit, a simple 'excuse me, is it ok if I sit here?' would have done the job. From experience, some people are spoiling for a fight.

I was walking through a shopping centre a short while ago and was doing the usual - looking one way and walking another (checking out stuff in shop windows). I walked into someone's outstretched hand - a lady in her 60s - who then gave me a look as if to say "you should have been looking where you were going". I promptly apologised and went on my way. The other people I there with said they saw the whole thing and she had tonnes of time to move out of the way: She wanted to make a point and stand her ground.

It wouldn't surprise me if this person had the same notions.

You're probably right, it was just a pretty weird thing to happen.

I mean, if I was on a busy train and there were only single seats left, I'd opt to stand rather than sit beside a stranger. Plus it means that woman and older folk are still in with a shot of a seat.

Just the total random intrusion of personal space threw me, If it was a guy I'd have been more vocal etc, but it's not good form to have a random shouting match with a middle aged woman.

Scottish, well that's alright then, blows my theory. :thumbsup: I thought she may have been chav/ned or worse hooray henrietta. Lucky you weren't on the tube as the law of the underground (in my experience) is downright scary.
