I don’t like to touch strangers. I would never sit on top of one. I wouldn’t open a newspaper or book and not notice how my elbow digs into the person next to me when I turn the pages. I wouldn’t open my legs so wide they touch the other person, forcing them to press against the window in a desperate attempt to get some space. I think these feelings ar pretty normal but maybe I’m wrong.
Getting the train to and from work everyday, I find someone sitting next to me with no regard for personal space. They don’t care if they hit me or press their legs against me, they’re quite happy to take up as much room as they like willfully ignoring my eagerness to move away from them or my balant sighs, tusks and eye rolling. It’s so annoying!
Have some consideration people please!
Any advice for stopping people cramping on my personal space?
