Entitlement Writ Large…

The woman had placed the child in its buggy on the train before returning to the platform at South Kensington to pick up her luggage when the train doors closed.
Passenger Malcolm Dyer said the woman, who was in her late twenties or early thirties, became hugely distressed and began screaming at the driver to stop the train.
Because of course the train will wait for you. You’re a mother. You’re entitled….
“I think the woman was a little silly to try to get on. It was as though she just couldn’t wait. I know the Circle line is quite irregular, but even so.”
Well, indeed.
