Using public transportation, you see and hear just about everything! Here is a recent conversation that Jiggy recently overheard on a crowded lift (elevator) leading to the exit of the Belsize Park (a nice but not posh area of London) underground station.
Young, attractive woman: "Why do we have to live here? This area is such a dump."
Old, white-haired partner (spouse) of young woman: "This is one of the top areas in all of London!"
Woman (with frustration and disgust): "No it's not you bloody moron!"
