Every man for himself

Maybe it's Thatcher's children, but people just seem so rude on trains these days. Men have definitely decided en masse to push in front of every woman they can. Just to prove they can, perhaps.

Get off a Thameslink train at St Pancras in the evening and you'll be hard pushed to reach the platform without asking someone politely to step away from the door so you can actually get off to let them on.

Of course, I could just be turning into a grumpy old woman. I do always step aside though, and pick up litter that I pass to put in the nearest bin. I'm not the only one with manners, but there are definitely more people working in central London who barely notice others, let alone show them any courtesy.

Rant over.
