i do that every day
i've also been known to utter "cunt" when asked to remove said feet
"Usual bullying by one brain cell jobsworths,just like the girl who dropped litter in Manchester a few months ago. If a 6' 12" thug would have put his feet on a seat,would he have been prosecuted?
* Dave Pickup"
Dave Pickup clearly needs to learn how many inches make a foot.
you can plead guilty to something and still be found not guilty? awesome!
who after telling me my mother would be ashamed of me grabbed my feet and tried to stick the newspaper under it. I have also been physically thrown out, arm twisted behind my back for having my feet up at the tumble down in farnborough. People are too highly strung.
have been prosecuted since feb? for putting their feet on seats? what the chuffing hell?
It just seems rude and there's loads of dirt on your shoes regardless.
That is all.
I wouldn't put my feet on a seat. I would stand on one and jump off it though, apparently, but I was drunk, so we'll look over that...
But: 1, she shouldn't have put her feet on the seat. 2, it's wrong, but it shouldn't have gone to a magistrate's court. 3, there probably is some middle ground here, but I'm fucked if I can find it off the top of my head.
that goes without saying.
The middle ground is not being a cunt to people who don't deserve it.
if anything they should've imposed an on the spot fine or something. that will discourage people and make them money, I'm surprised they haven't thought of that.
I put my feet on the seat occasionally, but I'm fully aware I'm probably sitting on other people's feet seats.
everywhere is dirty, it's not like we need to sit in a sterile environment.

or chewing gum, or drag myself through public conveniences on my arse...
surprisingly I don't tend to walk through these most days either. except sunday. that's my special blindly-walk-through-everything-day
I obviously strenuously avoid dogshit but I have no idea if particles get left on the pavement.
I certainly have trodden in chewing gum or other sticky substances and I've certainly used public toilets in pubs and clubs and so forth, the majority of which tend to have liquid on the floor that probably isn't water.
The stuff that goes on the souls of my shoes can't be compared to what goes on the arse of my trousers.
but it's not like your shoes are dripping with the stuff?!
I was just saying I'm not asking for a sterile environment, just less of what's on my shoes where I put my arse.
I've sat on grass where cows have probably once pissed.
I just dislike the lack of courtesy really. Although I'm sure everyone has, at some point, put their feet on a seat.
Ultimately, I'm not sure I care about this anymore. I'm off to find that 10p they found in sexybum's survey.
It's dead scientific.
I had testtubes and a white coat and everything.
I woke up too early today and I'm listening to Mars Volta very loudly. ignore me.
and I have to negotiate my way over them, I always 'stumble' and tread on them as heavily as I can.
I think statistically pavement is more hygenic than carpet, and I think the hard ground is more likely to wear away anything bad on my shoes rather than attach to them. Im willing to place money on my shoes being less dirty than a train seat.
