But we Londoners don’t get enough credit for our tolerance and civility – particularly on the Tube or the trains.
Visitors from other parts of the country (Yorkshire, in particular) moan how unfriendly and hostile London seems, but that seems rather unfair when you think about it.
Londoners spend hours a day on the Underground and Overground, locked in boxes that would make a battery hen squeal and forced into physical intimacy with complete strangers that would be grounds for divorce elsewhere.
And yet…there are almost never problems or “incidents”.
Sure, there’s the occasional idiot, the odd rude person who flouts the rules, but 99.9% of the time we just roll with it and get along.
Well done, London. I’m proud of you! 🙂
