i apologise in advance to what i am about to type and for what you are about to read but i really do need to share this with you, mainly the ladies that are reading this, and especially those ladies that travel on the london underground.
today and member of my team arrived to work in somewhat of a distraught state. i will now tell you the tale of what had happened to her on her travels into work on the district line.
as usual the district line was heaving, it was rush hour, this is quite the norm. personal space becomes quite an issue and a very rare luxury at these times of day.
she had boarded the train and was standing by the doors, against the glass panel that divides the central entry/exit area from the seated area. she was pretty much squished into the corner up against the glass with minimal space. she began to feel uncomfortable and that her personal space was being invaded more than normal. she became aware that the man next to her was close. uncomfortably close and perhaps rubbing against her. she had one stop to go before she left the train and desperately tried to move away in the little space she had. the doors opened the man left she turned and shot him a disapproving look and left the train her self.
on leaving the station she went to get a morning cup of tea, when she noticed something on her leg and then on her shoe. the man had indeed been rubbing himself and had left a very personal and very unwanted gift behind. down her leg and on her shoe.
this happened on a packed tube train in the height of londons morning rush hour. if this man is as bold to do this what else is he capable of.
please ladies be aware be very aware and please look out for those who are traveling with you who might look uncomfortable and unaware of what might be happening to them.
