    They are used to having less personal space than you. People in rural areas often keep a distance when interacting because they are used to having more space.

    Most usually just aren't really paying attention to other people and not looking where they are going. Sometimes you just need to because other people are not letting you pass (or standing on the left of escalators -_- ). I've had to where i was rushing to get to a train and the people in front took up the whole isle and I asked them politely to move out the way to let me pass and they didn't so you just have to push past them. Honestly I don't find it that big a deal if you're paying attention to what is going on yourself...it's just a minor annoyance...it's the drivers in london you've got to watch out for (any of my friends know how much I rant about cars just going round corners without indicating or parts of london where there are no pedestrian crossings).

    It actually confuses me when people stand on the wrong side, or stand on the right whilst putting their bag on the left. sometimes i feel i should be allowed to kick it out the way.

    If it's rush hour, you probably are.

    Everyone's in a rush and there's too many people. Saying 'excuse me' 1000x is just a waste of time.

    I see a lot of Tube rage/train rage, usually between middle age middle class looking men who like to get all uppity and huffy with each other safe in the knowledge that neither of them are hard enough to do anything about it.

    I saw one a month or so back where one guy started huffing at another then the other turned round, took his headphones out and said in a broad Glaswegian accent "eh.....have ye got a problem man?", Mr Huffy Indignant soon scurried away "er...no....no".

    I've seen somebody so desperate not to miss the tube that they jumped on as the door was closing and got their head trapped. I'm from the midlands and my boyfriend is from London, I'm always telling him Londoners are nuts. When he visited me the first time he was shocked that the shop assistant tried to have a conversation with him.

    Londoners can see OP's weakness and won't move for him. Be thankful you're not a member of another species/a Spartan that leave their sub-par offspring to die.
