Default First Class

It's funny when you see 90% of people in First wearing suits - you
know they otherwise can't afford to pay the fare as it's usually paid
for by their company and they've got a pretty boring day ahead with
meetings!

Then the self-obnoxious and often middle-aged ugly fat persons spend
the entire journey thinking they're important and engaging in mobile
phone conversations at the detriment of other people sat in First who
just want a quieter ride.

What about those self-obnoxious people who think they own 2 or 3 seats
by putting bags, coats etc on each one to prevent others sitting
there?

Oh, and the funny look you get when you come into the carriage with a
valid ticket but are dressed quite casually - the kind of look that
says 'Get out of here!' but that look vanishes after the guard checks
tickets without problem!

You know who the people are who havn'et paid for their own ticket
because they're always stingy enough never to buy food or drink on the
train out of their own pocket!

Errm... when was it made mandatory for on-topic posts to the newsgroup to
have a point?

The OP is simply sharing his personal observations and conclusions about FC
with the newsgroup.
