GETTING PUBLIC TRANSPORT is trying at the best of times, but this? This is simply outrageous.
This photo taken on a London train was shared on the Shit London Facebook page recently by Becky Curtin, who simply wrote:
Don’t mind me, I’ll stand…
Yes, that’s a bike taking up two valuable seats.
The photo caused significant outrage on the Shit London page and was picked up by the Evening Standard newspaper – Curtin explained that while her mum squeezed in to the seat not occupied by the bike or its owner, she and her husband had to stand.
The train was busy and there were people who needed seats… He was fast asleep. The bike was covered in mud as well. I just thought it was very selfish.
Well, she’s not alone in that. Here’s a sampling of the feeling on the Shit London page:
That’s the kind of thing that would have made me have a ‘Falling Down’ moment.
Please tell me someone said something to him, I can’t go to bed knowing he’s still out there thinking this kind of sh*t is normal or acceptable.
For shame, Bike Man. For shame.
