This is a question Driven to Madness

Captain Placid asks: What annoying things do significant others, workmates and other people in general do that drive you up the wall? Do you want to kill your other half over their obsessive fridge magnet collection? Driven to distraction over your manager's continued use of Comic Sans (The Font of Champions)? Tell us.

Excellent thinks I, I have a seat. So here I neatly sit, trying not to stray into neighbouring territory, headphones at an acceptable level.

The man to my right however is sitting, as one might sit on the toilet, legs akimbo, broadsheet unfolded to maximum capacity, as he digs his elbow into my side, flapping the stupid pages of his paper, my blood starts to boil and then he lets out a huge yawn, unfiltered by a polite hand, and wafted by his broadsheet I get the full olfactory hit of warm stale breath. GAH shitty death to you sir.

Also when sitting, where else is it acceptable to fart into the face of another commuter other than on London Blunderground.

And those people who think it’s ok to push their way onto the train. Usually wearing a massive backpack which knocks me sideways every time they move.

And to add final insult to injury; once, I was holding on for dear life as the central line hurtled along towards home and this suited, bespectacled chap leaned his paper on my head. Yes, on my head, I am a little on the short side but there was no need for that, so I pointed out that I was actually there under his paper much to the amusement of the other commuters.

it's acceptable
to fart in the face of another commuter on the Tashkent-Lahore express.

Positively encouraged in fact.

Makes your blood boil, doesn't it
On my regular train I like the seats where they are in two's, all facing the same way.

Until some twat with a broadsheet leans the top of it over the back of my chair and onto my head.

I let it go once, complain the second time and take the paper the third time.

Does no-one think about other people? Are they so wrapped up in themselves that they have to make everyone's life just that little bit shittier?
