The Sock Of Hate


Ah now.

Yesterday evening.

I was on a DART going to Bray [County Wicklow] when I spotted this bozo who decided it would be a good idea to take his left runner off and put his sweaty-socked foot on the seat in front of him!

    At least it’s not the muddy sole of his trainer on the seat. This at least shows some consideration.

      Ah, yes, that can be a problem. I was on a train one time with something similar. A lady in the carriage took out a deodorant spray can and sprayed the guys feet with some floral scent, overpowering his stench but also embarrassing the heck out of the guy, who promptly put his shoes back on.

      Jayus, why didn’t you say something instead of slinking away and sending a picture to BS. Your sad.

    Brother Barnabas – appearances can be deceptive! Trust me, it smelled rank.

            I’m trying desperately hard to make a “denier” pun here…..

    Simple to fix.

    €250 fine for putting your feet on the seat.

    Subsequent instances get you a long ban and if you continue to offend, a lifetime ban.

    If caught on the train after that, anyone should be allowed to literally throw the offender off the train (when moving) without any sanctions.

    Give a whole new slant to the the burden of having to travel with the “great unwashed”

    sniffing, feet on seats, roaring into phones, watching music vids with no earphones, complete lack of simple verbal ” excuse me’s or thank yous” why bother when you can push ? undisciplined children who think the world is a zoo etc
    I’m sorry but public transport users are incredibly uncivil in Dublin in my experience

      Absolutely. That’s every day. Use it long enough and you’ll see far worse.

          cause people would call you out of you did,
          people never speak their mind here,
          God forbid you make a scene,
          some wagon just dumped over ripe bananas out of her bag under her seat and then changed seats,
          I gave them back to her, told her, you forgot these,dropped them in her lap, people looked at me like I’d two heads

            A dude on the late train was watching youtube ‘how to’ vids loudly on the carriage…I asked him to lower it please…he told me to fupp off. I sat across from him, searched Sepultura and air-drummed that sucker into silence. I even got to do the big smug “THANK YOU” when he piped down..heh heh.

          European transport networks (plus the UK) have a police or security presence, which I always thought was OTT and police-state-like. But times have changed in many ways. Ireland doesn’t face a terrorist threat anything like on the continent, yet we have to deal with a fierce amount of thuggery and and scumbaggery. It was great to see the Luas arrive with private security for that very reason, But the bus is an open cesspit. The forces in Britain and France have to be anti-terrorist and enforce proper usage of the facilities – and begob they do it.

    why didn’t she push the emergency stop button and demand to speak to the drivers’ manager?

    Try the train to Sligo… Once you go past Mullingar… all the above plus angry parents who will go insane if you as much as sigh or even look in the general direction of any of their feral offspring as they treat the whole train as their personal fiefdom/ashtray/toilet.

      you must have ridiculous standards
      I’d be happy with some basics

      1. Termagant

        I just want everyone to look nice and smell nice and behave themselves and not eat loudly or eat anything with a strong smell and to just be quiet unless engaged in conversation by me at which point they should be intelligent and interesting and provide a stimulating foil for my own assertions while not actually challenging their core ideas

        is that REALLY so much to ask

        And I want the schoolchildren to stop mucking about keeping the doors open for their mates as they move from carriage to carriage when it’s time for the train to go. And doing all the other stuff they do. Just stop everything re: schoolchildren.
