Another Hundred People Just Got *On* to the Train

I think I've found a universal truth ...

And I'm not talking about no matter which empty locker you choose at the gym, when you come back to change someone is standing at the one next to you.

No, this universal truth is that people who ride subway / tube trains are stupid and inconsiderate. Three doors per car, tons of room in the aisle between each door, but nobody will walk into it (even if there's an empty seat) because their doorside real estate is just too valuable.

And they won't step out of the way to let more people on; nope, they just stand there, crowding each other to death, nose in their Guardian or lastest Waterstone's purchase, pretending to ignore the others.

A city of strangers, indeed.
