Being Invisible on the Tube - Chivalry is dead(unless you are 20 & Blonde)


I dread the short Tube journey from Ladbroke Grove to Paddington every morning. I never get a seat, because I am polite enough to wait and let people off the train first rather than pushing and shoving my way on.
I am 51, neither pregnant, frail enough nor pretty & slim enough to ever be offered a seat. Must times I can't even get a hold of the hand rail due to people leaning on it.
Yeah, of course I understand if you are 19-25 you need a seat more than me as you've likely been out all night. Or you are some suit who thinks your entitled as you've got an annual travel card. Yeah, well don't let the jeans fool you...so have I. I'll just hang tippy toe from the ceiling rail and never mind the shooting pain up my arm.
Oh, and when we arrive at Paddington, please feel free to either pushing front of me or shove me off the train and tut loudly.And be sure to hit me in the head with your overload back pack or trip me up with your briefcase on wheels contraption.
Don't even get me started on the 08.40 to Reading!!!!!!!

Your only 51? I thought most people who were only 51 were insulted to get offered a seat. I've actually overheard people on the tube talking about how insulting it is for people to offer them a seat... You should get a walking stick if you want people to offer you their seats, oh and you can hit people with it accidently as you pass, I'm sure that would be satisfying.
