Londoners reveal their unacceptable breaches of London etiquette

James Manning

We asked: what unacceptable London behaviour are you guilty of? Here’s what you confessed to…

‘I was a London Underground Backpack Wanker once upon a time. The shame.’

‘Paying for a black cab through the little inside window.’

‘I read over people’s shoulders: newspapers, WhatsApp, anything.’

‘I wait until the barrier shuts before I touch my Oyster card, just in case it gets confused with the one before me.’

‘I ate fish and chips on the tube last week, and I hate smelly food on public transport… #needsmust.’

‘Giggling like a schoolboy every time I hear the word “Cockfosters”.’

‘Deliberately walking into people who are walking towards me looking at their phones.’

‘I always give pull-along suitcases a little nudge with my foot, to make them go wobbling all over the shop.’

‘Shouting at joggers, “Go eat a pizza!”’

Now wince as Londoners reveal their favourite naff places in the city.
