Strategy for ensuring the seat next to you remains empty whilst travelling by train.

script for a train

Travelling by train is nice. Having a fat sweaty person next to you is not however. Here’s my strategy for dealing with the problem:

  1. Arrive at the station early to ensure you get a descent seat. place a coat or other “prop” on the adjacent seat.
  2. Download the above image and open it up on your laptop, ensuring it is clearly visible to anyone passing.
  3. If anyone asks you “is this seat free?” follow the script as above.
  4. Enjoy.
