Interesting article in the latest Rail magazine about passengers putting their feet on seats. Personally I find this totally unacceptable but so many people seem to do it maybe I am out of step and society thinks it is OK. There seems little hope of doing anything about it if the on train staff accept it as normal. During my travels in Cornwall last week a young lady (16 or 17 years old) was sat in a pair of airline seats on an IET with her back to the wall and her feet, with shoes, on the adjacent seat. She was not aggressive or threatening in any way but obviously thought there was nothing wrong with what she was doing. She will continue to think this as the train manager first walked past without saying anything and then to my surprise she returned 5 minutes later to perform a ticket check and actually checked her ticket whilst the passenger’s feet where still on the seat and still made no comment. I was tempted to say something myself but desisted. If the staff can’t be bothered why should I? Maybe I am just turning into a grumpy old git!
