    what happens if she has a medical issue that means she can't lift the suitcase?

    Should she have to explain this to everyone?
    I think if it were me I would still say excuse me or apologise because I couldn't lift it... Or just not walk down a packed train when there were no seats as everyone was standing. Dunno, if there was a genuine reason of course I would feel differently but it didn't seem like that :-/

    We really could do with a heavily armed Etiquette Police to patrol all public areas and rigidly enforce polite behaviour, perhaps with the use of shock batons and stun grenades.

    Our once extremely polite country is descending into a mire of impolite barbarism. Only extreme measures can save us.

    One of my biggest bug bears is rude people. There is absolutely no need for rudeness. It takes so little to use basic manners and show consideration for other people.

    This morning on the train to TSR, which goes past Gatwick Airport so there are lots of people with suitcases, I think I saw the rudest woman I've ever seen.

    She wasn't rude with words, in fact, she said nothing at all!

    Train is packed, aisles full of people squeezing on. Some people have small suitcases next to them in the aisles, which granted I usually find frustrating but this train is busy with people going to Gatwick and you just have to get on with it.

    This lady with HER OWN SMALL SUITCASE (key fact) appears walking down the aisle. Wheeling said suitcase behind her.

    She stops at the first suitcase. Looks down at it with a fixed smirk on her face. The guys with the other suitcase panic BECAUSE THEY ARE NICE and try to move their suitcases. Offending woman does not move at all until they are cleared.

    Then she moves on without saying thank you or even acknowledging them!

    THEN she does it to everyone for an entire carriage!

    The thing is, she could have lifted her suitcase up! Or said thank you.

    It really doesn't take much.

    So, is this the rudest thing or have you seen worse?!
    A lot of people say I'm rude because I tell the truth which is ironic HOWEVER I've had people constantly stare at me before but I stare them back bc two can play at that game. I remember when there was a guy on the train (some of us students were going to the BBC bc we're important ) and he wouldn't stop looking at my friend and I, like excuse you. We just cursed him out in Urdu and Punjabi then stared at him until he left.

    See, now that is plain reckless and silly, I mean what if the man had a mental illness and was armed with a weapon?
    You shouldn't verbally engage with strangers like that

    Tbh, Londoners barge each other all the time, men woman, rich or poor you will get equally barged or shoulder brushed at full speed.

    lol

    Sometimes being honest can be rude. I like the phrase "if you haven't got anything nice to say, don't say anything at all".

    It's rude but nowhere near the rudest thing I've ever seen. I've had customers get angry and tell me to get cancer, get angry at me for things I have no control over, try to fight me for laughing at a colleague's innocent joke about something unrelated... get a retail job and you'll find a brand new definition of rude.
