I again went to Maplin; in Parkway, NW London, today. Walking along Camden Road, I noticed that one of 2 Asian female teenagers was brushing against everyone as she passed by. Now, Camden Road has wide pavements and there weren't all that many people there at the time. I was annoyed at that lack of good manners. I managed to catch up with them, and remonstrated with them (I did ask if they spoke English). They just looked at me, and said nothing. And they then went on their way. Camden Road has a large Sainsbury's, and I went in to buy a few things. On the way out, I decided to sit down as my legs were aching. There are only 2 seats there (too few). One seat was occupied by a young boy, and the other one had a middle-aged African woman's shopping bags on it. As she made no attempt to move them, I asked her to do so. She replied "In a minute". I asked her to move them at once. There followed an angry exchange of words with that person trying to "browbeat" me. Unfortunately for her, that never works with me. In the meantime, the young boy had vacated his seat; for which I thanked him. The woman went on her way still talking angrily. In Camden Road station, a young Black man was sitting in the sheltered area, and had 2 parcels on the seat next to him. As soon as he saw me approach, he removed these parcels, which allowed me to sit down.
End of tale.
