Feeling English

The Northern Line was dire this morning. I was running late to start, couldn’t push my way onto three trains and when I finally did, I was stuffed between two men. If you’re going to be that close to someone, you really ought to use a condom. At Oval I managed to squeeze over by the door against the flexi glass. A woman got on and she proceeded to take off her jacket. Normally this action would be fairly innocuous but when you are jammed in like we were, it is a grave offence indeed. I felt a, “You have got to be kidding me look” on my face. I noticed another woman watching the Jacket Remover and we locked eyes and we shared a silent, “What a dumb cow” moment. I felt very English.
