No sooner had I spoke about travelling back from Gatwick with an average sized rucksack on the tube yesterday - today I was unfortunate enough to get on the Piccadilly Line that had come in from Heathrow, where there seemed to be the annual convention of backpackers from Oz reunion. I have never seen such large backpacks and they proceeeded to congregrate on the floor in front their owners taking up the space of four adults or at least ten small children.

One of the owners of the backpacks whistled to it and it leapt upon his shoulders as he left the train proceeding to stamp heavily on my foot as he left. I left after him and watched him nearly concuss half a dozen people as he made his way upstairs.

Do you not realise you have something the size of a Smart car on your back? Do you not think this might be a tad inconvenient to travel this way in the rush hour?

For more on this check out my
ramblings on the main site.

Oh do behave
