Travelling by train is nice. Having a fat sweaty person next to you is not however. Here’s my strategy for dealing with the problem:
- Arrive at the station early to ensure you get a descent seat. place a coat or other “prop” on the adjacent seat.
- Download the above image and open it up on your laptop, ensuring it is clearly visible to anyone passing.
- If anyone asks you “is this seat free?” follow the script as above.
