eSpares to the rescue again

Annoying People

Either I’m getting old or I’m a magnet for peoples bad and inconsiderate behaviour while travelling. Some examples:

On a wet Monday morning, people getting on train with wet coats and bags dripping over me, no apologies whatsoever A woman sat next to me with her mp3 player up so loud I could hear hers […]
