..or more accurately, to give them a nudge

Across the table from me on the train, I came back from the loo and his feet were blatantly visible right in front of my seat. This after he had been nudging my handbag for a while - again, just beside my chairleg (i kept worrying someone was trying to nick it!)

I mean I get that trains must be less comfortable for v tall folks but actually he looks more medium sized and just slouching. So was I bu to not to pick my way to avoid his feet when putting mine down.

He's tucked them in now, by the way. Eye contact scrupulously avoided all round, this in England smile

Kick him hard and then do a very british apology.

I think this is called 'manspreading'.

You must be really cross as your running two threads about said slouching!

I am very tall and as a tall man sat down across from he he said 'can you put your legs somewhere else please?'confused umm where exactly? Luggage rack?

No not cross, just incompetent sorry! Yes, manspreading. It does make me seethe. He kept nudging my handbag too. Grrr

Start talking on your phone very loudly about being on the train and all you can smell is musty balls.

Oh,now I am cross trexing, there's some shockers. Feeling v wimpish for not taking photo under the table.... But still, I did 'reclaim my space' eh?
