I'm pretty sure I've ranted about the London Underground on here before. To be honest, I have almost no problems with the service in itself, it runs well most of the time but when one thing goes wrong the whole system goes to pot and there's chaos and I get very tired...but that's a rant for another day. XD
The subject of this rant is the general public who use the London Underground. I'll leave out the stuff where women are so (expletive deleted) rude in the morning, pushing you with their over-sized bags, stepping on you with their heels and tripping on their stupid shoes and then look at you like it's your fault. I'll also leave out the stuff where people don't seem to shower or use deodorant anymore, and normal manners like cover your mouth when you sneeze/cough have been completely forgotten. That stuff's just standard now.
But this morning! I couldn't bloody believe it! The train was half full, all the seats were ALL taken except one and this dude rushed for it. Don't worry, that's not the bad part. This heavilly pregnant lady comes on the train and he don't even offer her the seat, he blatently tried to ignore her. But that's not the bad part. This woman comes on, dolled up like it's a Saturday night when it's 8am in the morning, and he offers her the seat! If I wouldn't get nicked for it, I'd have smacked him upside the head! He couldn't even use the excuse that she may have just been chubby not preggers, she was wearing a badge that said Baby on Board. Fair enough, if she didn't want to sit down, he could've at least asked!
In short, if you've got nice legs and a pretty face, you'll get a seat. Carrying a human being? Sorry, not gonna cut it. As Seth Cohen once said, "Chivalry is dead, sugar." I know, he contradicted himself later, but he's cute so it's allowed. I don't have an OH NO YOU DIDN'T icon so Serizawa freaking out will have to do!
In other news, I'm gonna make a "Hel-lo Nurse!" tag. Only cos I've been watching a heck of a lot of Animaniacs recently (OMG, how many adult jokes did I miss as a child?!) and it's become a part of my everyday speech now. Plus, I'm watching PD again to make the picspams and Lee Pace definitely requires a "Hel-lo Nurse!" tag. XD
