I quite like the idea of (b), but I thought a typical English person when being tripped would apologise to the tripper --or did I read Kate Fox wrong?

He won't remember a thing about it once he wakes up, don't bother.

Walk down the carriage again armed with precariously balanced hot drinks and a loose shoelace.

Hmmmmm... (b) does sound tempting- but leaving him to be the sad little toss that he is while you go on with being awesome without giving him a backward glance is probably the bigger win.

I think you missed your opportunity to deliberately trip over his feet and “accidentally” pour your coke into his lap.

Was he the type of weasel faced smug little sh1t that would run into someone on his (road) illegal bike, kill them, tweet it wasn’t my fault and smirk all the way thru the hearing right up to the point when sentence was passed?

If yes, then i read somewhere that it is perfectly legit to stab him, provided you bought him a get well soon card within 7 days.

HTH.

I would have taken the moral high ground, along with umbrage, and let it go.

It's not millenialism, it's spoiling for a fight... I'd leave it unless you want a fight...

The guy is a dick regardless of generation. He also sounds drunk or under the influence.

Option B.

I went for option (b), just before I got off. I have a photo of the sign I put on him (but not a picture of the antagonist) I put on him, if anyone is interested.

(c) apologise

Ps: I once did this myself to a toddler on a 'plane. Knocked the little ****er flying. Oops! Heh!

Fvcked if I'm apaologising for something which wasn't my fault, Dux. If I was four inches taller and a little bit more well built, I really would have taken him to task for being such a little bastard. As it is, it was fairly obvious that taking on a drunk guy and two of his drunk mates would have ended up with me picking up my teeth from the carriage floor. Nope, a subtle retribution was all the more satisfying. I'm only sorry that he probably couldn't read. Just seeing the person on the table opposite start to snigger when they saw my handiwork was enough to tell me it was the right thing to do.

Hmmm. Seems a bit passive aggressive.

Either apologise or beat him up. That's the English way.

No Dux - that's the idiot's way. Too binary by far. A little public humiliation does no harm.

Probably let it slide.

I have seen the alternate approach on a train from St Albans to st Pancras where a chap with loud music was asked by a commuter to turn it down or put his headphones on, said person replied **** off, what are you going to do about it. He was asked again, where the lad responded **** off you old see you next Tuesday. Next thing the old boy punches the kid clean in the face, with a nose bleed and got off at West Hampstead

Like I say, I pick my moments. I'd have had a pop if he'd been on his own. But he had two mates, all of them were belligerently drunk, and after 40 odd years I rather enjoy having teeth. Call me a fond old fool if you will.

Too right. Damned near used a marker pen on his forehead, but that wouldn't have been tactically sound.

Well damn, Os. Because that's so high up on my list of priorities I'm going to have to drop everything else until I've achieved just that. Never mind that it's my weekend with my children who I haven't seen for two weeks, or that I have a sh1tload of work to do tonight. Hoolie's scornful incredulity deserves an answer.
