- I/we will stand on the platform while waiting for the train and I/you will not push you/me in front of it as it arrives.
- A coat laid on an adjacent set indicates the seat is taken.
- I/you will not attempt to start a conversation with you/me for the duration of the elevator’s trip.
I consider myself fairly patient but this is one of the things that really brines my pickle. It’s not that the dufus is slowing me down (the way things currently stand I really don’t want to get to work any faster than I have to) but the lack of awareness offends me. What gives them the right to break the unspoken contract? All I’m asking it that my short trips up and down the moving
stairway are unimpeded and irritation free. Is that too much to ask?
