to be shaken by rude idiots on the tube?

I was meeting a friend who works in centre of London for lunch today and had to get the Waterloo and City. I was running late (my fault!) and dashed down to the station and just jumped on as the door closing sounder was going (doors were not moving and I was on before they closed) - I know you are supposed to wait before people lecture!

On entering I trip and graze my knees badly and break my glasses. Two blokes in the middle of carriage roar with laughter. The driver comes on the PA as me move off "passengers are reminded not to board when the doors are closing" then one of these idiots shouts "that what you get when you can't get your arse through the door". Was in tears at this point, told them to fuck off, but they sniggered all journey (luckily only a few mins)

Feel sad and angry, friend helped me clean up and got plasters at her office. I would help someone I saw fall, help pick up there dropped stuff would be a normal reaction? Why are some people just so rude now, surprised it wasn't filmed on a phone or something sad

They were absolute arsewipes- I hope you wasn't hurt too badly.

I am a frequent faller and have been very lucky not to encounter idiots like that.

I am a regular commuter and I would have helped you. They are pigs angry.

flowers OP I use the tube regularly at rush hour and would have helped you.

I fell into a carriage once (tipsy so my own fault and felt very embarrassed) but there were a couple of women who were sympathetic and helped me laugh it off, one said 'we've all been there come and sit next to me' and we chatted until one of us got off.

They were 'door handles' as my teens who aren't allowed to swear would say grin
