‘Rude passenger blocked me from boarding busy train – so I ruined his trip’

All is fair in love and war, but what about the fight for a seat on the train? It’s an all-too-common problem for passengers, but that doesn’t mean everyone follows the same code of conduct.

The British love to queue. You could even say that we finished it manually.

Whether we’re waiting to check in at the airport or using the festive restroom, we easily create perfectly shaped rows.

But all too often, our chivalrous and polite behavior goes out the window upon boarding.

No matter how long you’ve waited on a platform, expect to squeeze through other passengers to find a seat on a crowded carriage.

Even if you line up at the exact spot where the door opens, it becomes free for everyone after the crowd has left.

It’s not ideal, is it? But also don’t get in the way of other passengers boarding so your group can easily find a seat. Unfortunately, this is a tactic that one passenger took up recently, to the dismay of another. Sharing her sadness in a post on Mumsnet, the woman explained that she was waiting for the last train home at the time.

She wrote: “I arrived at the platform, crowded – the last train from the city. I stood close to the line. A man stood next to me near the line to board the train. The rest of my group. he stood back but couldn’t tell where the carriage door would stop.
