Tutting on the tube

The wonderful
Zbornak just sent me an email with the following top link which is one of a series of open letters written to people who are not going to reply. This letter is to people who tut on the tube.

Many many parts of this letter ring true and I've blogged before or they form part of the unofficial tube rules. Frinstance:

"We have all felt the irrational tut welling up inside, when faced with a rogue escalator user (probably one of our European cousins), riding shotgun on the right-hand side........

"My personal favourite remains the person who relentlessly jabs his or her defective ticket into the barriers whilst a queue of dangerous tuts forms behind them.

"But why use the "tut" when a "for fucks sake!" would probably do the same job?

"It is an accepted notion, and I would even go so far as to say an unspoken code, that people in the underground do not talk to one another.

Check out the rest of the letter - it's top.
