The Metro is a free newspaper for London commuters. This is a quote from a recent edition:-
"Forget people who refuse to give up their seat for pregnant passengers, what we really hate about Tube travel is commuters who look like they ‘might play the accordion’.
Bizarrely, five per cent of commuters polled said ‘simply appearing to own a squeeze box’ was enough to cause annoyance".
And that’s before they even play it!!
Having seen a cello player struggle to get her instrument through turnstiles and off and on tube trains, I would have thought an accordion was fairly innocuous!
And would most people have realised what was in the case? I often get asked what’s in my case even though I would have thought a fiddle case was quite recognisable.
