It is clear that on occasion people in this part of the world can be just downright rude. Take today, I was getting off the 3.14 train from Béal Feirste/Belfast to Doire/Londonderry in An Baile Meánach/Ballymena and there were about thirty people on the platform waiting to board the train. Unfortunately, at the door where I was trying to get off, they just hurded themselves into a group and stood opposite the door, right close to the train and there was nowhere for me to stand had I been able to get onto the platform.
It’s probably time that Translink made some suggestion on how to board a train:
“stand on either side of the door and let those alighting do so, before boarding the train.”
But, like everything here, it’s bound to be ignored.
