Inappropriate Behaviour

by Jonathan Hill
Originally published by on 23/02/2018

Inside the Tube carriage, there was the usual mix of people.

A Japanese couple – tourists – the obligatory cameras round necks. Two teenage girls in school uniform – why were they not in the classroom? A man, early twenties, cap on head. A couple, gay, for one leaned against the other and they kissed briefly now and again.

People began to grow uncomfortable. They nervously fidgeted in their seats. This was wrong, their body language screamed. One of them should speak up, speak out.

Eventually the capped man took his feet off the seat, prompting a collective sigh and relaxing of shoulders.
