Why do people do it? Some girl on the train to Reading was blethering on chain calling first some friend then (presumably) some ex-boyfriend, then some other mate to relate the entire 'fraught' conversation to her ex that we had just been party to half of.
The couple opposite her resorted to drink. The rest of us looked for headphones.
We left her on the train going to Taunton when we got off at Reading. She was busy saying: "The fing is he didn't give me any respect and you know wiv me it's all about respect, yeah?" This caused a few sniggers from those of us who were exiting.
