To think that if the train is half empty you don't have to practically sit on my knee?

Why would you seriously? I'm a grumpy bag I know. There's no reserved seats in the carriage. There's an a empty table accross the isle. I'm sat at an empty table mnetting. He plonks down a huge laptop and phone and newspaper and sits directly opposite me. Our knees are touching ffs!!

Big hacking coughing fit might get him to move? grin

He's a bar steward. Bet he does it because it is the seat he always sits in and always in the same carraige. It is his seat. You have my full sympathy.

He's just asked to borrow my freaking pen and he's now filling in the survey. We've only left the station ten minutes ago shock

You've got a new train friend! This happened to my dh at the cinema once. We were the only people in there and a man came in and sat next to my dh! 3 of us cosied up in a row for the whole film!!

This is against all Commuter Rules. What is he thinking?

You have my sympathy too.

I won't beable to eat infront of him. I want to move but it will be obvious. He's reading the questionnaire so seriously.

Maybe he fancies you?

PedantMarina Mon 24-Feb-14 18:05:32

ohhh, DO eat something! something squirty.

then pick your nose and flick, not at him, at first, but a little closer each time....

Lighthousekeeping Mon 24-Feb-14 18:09:32

He's got a blue id badge around his neck but I can't see what it is as it's under his jumper

Lighthousekeeping Mon 24-Feb-14 18:10:42

I really don't like leg touching. I'm like Liz Jones.

Lighthousekeeping Mon 24-Feb-14 18:14:00

Right I've just walked to the cafe. It literally is half empty. How am I going to do this without looking rude?

Changebagsandgladrags Mon 24-Feb-14 18:23:14

Sit in another seat, pretend you got lost...

ahlahktuhflomp Mon 24-Feb-14 18:24:19

Don't. Do it with looking rude. Woman's perogative.

daisychain01 Mon 24-Feb-14 18:24:56

Well, you shouldn't be so drop-dead gorgeous should you!

Lighthousekeeping Mon 24-Feb-14 18:27:24

I bought my carb loaded meal deal and went and got my stuff. His legs where so spread out a just could not face asking him to move them. I just smiled and lived up most of my stuff. I've left my coat there. He's still filling that questionnaire so I can wave goodbye to my work pen.

Crowler Mon 24-Feb-14 18:27:48

He likes you.

Lighthousekeeping Mon 24-Feb-14 18:28:02

Lifted. Bloody iPad.

HavantGuard Mon 24-Feb-14 18:28:06

Move. He's broken the rules of public transport. He doesn't deserve any courtesy.

Lighthousekeeping Mon 24-Feb-14 18:28:37

I have got a new tocca perfume on......

Crowler Mon 24-Feb-14 18:29:22

Is he hot? Are you single? Could this happen?

brettgirl2 Mon 24-Feb-14 18:30:55

yabu its a seat he sat there. If you want space move.

Lighthousekeeping Mon 24-Feb-14 18:33:34

I have moved, thanks. He has a wedding ring on and I'm not interested in someone who is still filling out a two page survey the train left an hour and fifteen minutes ago. Who has that much to say?

Crowler Mon 24-Feb-14 18:35:30

I think possibly the survey was a pretext for the pen request.

But your concerns about someone who would spend over an hour on a train survey are well-founded.

Yanbu. Sounds like a total space invader. Move away, you are not being rude, he was!
