Tube Etiquette Part 2

A few weeks ago, I blogged about a disturbing young diva, songsmith who decided that the rest of the Cenral Line was entitled to hear her wonderful voice and great R&B grooves. We all know how I felt about that then. This afternoon while again taking the Central Line back from Bond St., I overheard some 20 something year old scenester types going through some of the lines from one of my all-time favorite movies, “The Big Lebowski”. After mulling over in my head for several minutes if I should interject, I simply leaned over before leaving the tube quoting “The Stranger” from mentioned movie, “Ya know, sometimes you eat the bar, sometimes the bar, he eats you.”. The rest of the train was baffled as to why the crowd of youngsters were laughing amongst themselves as if I suddenly told them some sort of dirty, inside joke. Clearly getting a nod of approval, I exited accomplishing everything. The question remains, when is it okay to break the code of silence on tubes to mingle?

    ONLY if it makes you look extremely cool whilst baffling the hell out of the general public for the next few days.

    I’m all for people expressing themselves, but when you are on a crowded train, the last thing you want to hear is some twat playing his/her music loud or worse yet, having a conversation that is best done in private.

    Anything funny and intelligent like this is more than welcome for me, as long as it’s respectful for the others.
