This is London?

Explain this to me. I make eye contact with the guy sitting opposite me on the tube. I say "Hey, how's it going?" His response? "Don't talk to me." So I don't. We get off at the same stop, get in the same lift, and he starts talking to me again. "You got a problem?" he asks me, like I'm threatening him. I say it's a bit of an over the top reaction to a simple 'hello'. He gets aggressive. I tell him this is his issue, not mine, and walk off.

And everyone I speak to about this goes, "Oh, well, you shouldn't speak to people on the tube, you're lucky you didn't get stabbed".

That's just London for you.

Everyone has their own plans and tries to get on with their own lives. When people 'invade', or simply communicate in your case, it is seen with caution.

Big city life

I can't believe someone would act like that. People like that are why I don't talk to strangers often.

People are just angry with their lives and monotony. Perhaps you where just the perfect target to explode =/
It's like when you go smiling at 8am in a crowded bus...you'll get angry looks even if you don't deserve it!!

Good luck next time! =D

Hello there!!

I've been reading your posts recently on your site and they were all quite resourceful. I really enjoyed reading. I was wondering if you're open for guest bloggers, as I can submit one that would definitely be enjoyed by your readers. I also have a website related to yours that might be of interest to your readers as well. I believe that we could help each other's site.


Hope to hear from you soon.


Regards, Paul.
