Cos it's bohemian rhapsody and the irritating yuppie couple opposote have talked on the quiet carriage for the last 50 minutes?

Fuck it, I'm doing it anyway. Might mime along too.

So you think you can love me and leave me to die?

LadyRainicorn Tue 26-Feb-13 08:12:07

Nothing really matters, anyone one can see

YABU people are allowed to speak its called being sociable!

However playing music out loud in public is a total pet hate of mine so I would say that grin

Anyway the wind blows. ..

It's gone on repeat. Fuck Tuesdays.

I'm on headphones

You're not supposed to talk on a mobile so why be allowed to talk to the person next to you? That's twice the noise?

Only if you do a "Wayne's World" type rendition....it's the law...

You are allowed to talk to people on a quiet carriage. Most people find hearing half a conversation more annoying.

Very small scale miming and head nodding banging going while yah, yah, yah goes on opposite. Thank god Waterloo is next stop

LadyRainicorn Tue 26-Feb-13 08:25:05

Prodigy for the tube! Yeah!

LadyRainicorn Tue 26-Feb-13 08:25:52

Up up and away in my beautiful, my beautiful balloon

YABU but funny.

LadyRainicorn Tue 26-Feb-13 09:29:39

I still don't get why it's acceptable for 2 people to be talking to each other but hadthey been talking quietly on their phones they would have been justifiably sanctisanctimoniously tutted at.

Yes! There's a reason I sit there!

itsakindarabbit Tue 26-Feb-13 09:48:41

YAB incredibly precious.

itsakindarabbit Tue 26-Feb-13 09:50:36

Aren't headphones banned on quiet carriages anyway?

no idea I'm not anal enough to want to sit in the quiet carriage

thesecretmusicteacher Tue 26-Feb-13 09:51:14

I'm in that carriage too. Please turn your music off.

itsakindarabbit Tue 26-Feb-13 09:51:48

What train company are you travelling with?

Buzzardbird Tue 26-Feb-13 09:53:30

YABU, "Yuppie"? What decade are you in? Is it a time travelling train? grin

LadyRainicorn Tue 26-Feb-13 09:57:12

South west trains

You're allowed headphones as long as the music doesn't leak out. Mine may have leaked out a tiny bit on the loudest I could stand (which was only about a third of the bar I'm such a wimp)

I am crammed onto a train for an hour. If I'm to be a sardine, I'd like to be a peaceful sardine. Is that precious? I wouldn't complain if it wasn't the quiet carriage.

LadyRainicorn Tue 26-Feb-13 09:59:01

Possibly. They got on at ascot and talked about dinner parties and crap. I was too lazy to think of the modern alternative!

SW trains guidance for quiet carriages says "please show consideration by not using mobile phones and making sure your music doesn't disturb others".

Doesn't say no talking, you're making it up as you go along a bit I think.

You're in the wrong place, you need the trappist monks carriage grin.

"If I'm to be a sardine, I'd like to be a peaceful sardine. Is that precious?"

Yes it is if you're making up rules to suit yourself.

I'd bloody love a trappist monks carriage. Or a miserable sullen gits carriage.

Sadly I always seem to end up in the overcrowded fighty carriage.
