I've just returned home from London by train and witnessed a most bizarre experiences. It was the busy 7.00pm train. The train was getting close to departure. The seats were mostly taken. A man walked up the aisle, realised that someone was in his reserved seat and politely told the seated man he was in the wrong seat. The seated man (a smartly dressed gent who'd clearly eaten far too many business lunches) said it didn't have a reserved ticket on it so he was staying seated. The man who'd reserved the seat, said I'm sorry but this is my seat I have a reserved ticket and started to show the ticket. The seated man said I don't care, I'm staying here. A mild argument started but the seated man basically said it's not my problem you find another seat, I'm not moving. And he didn't move.
Right or wrong? Assertive or downright rude?
I know what I think! I rarely feel violent, but I wanted to ram the bloke's phone ear piece up his....I had to leave my seat and find another on the train as I had steam coming out of my ears.
