I’m on the train home after a long day 3 trains and a 3 hour journey . I was just about first on so I placed my rucksack on the seat with my harness over it and put Frankie on the floor under the seat . I then thought I heard a gent mutter something under his breath so I tuned my aids in on the outdoor setting and sure enough he was. If he had only had the decency to ask I would have gladly given up my seat for him or his wife. There was no need to call me under his breath. I was dying to say something but sometimes somethings are better not said. I guess I got the last laugh.
