Man wearing rucksack on both shoulders

COMMUTERS want to know why a man who gets the same train wears his rucksack on both shoulders.

The commuters, who gather in the same place on the platform every morning for the 08.12 train, have observed that the man does not appear to have any valid excuse, such as being a French exchange student or the small child from Sleepless in Seattle.

Nikki Hollis said: “Everyone knows that a rucksack on a grown man screams ‘emotionally stunted techie’, so it’s essential to wear it casually over one shoulder. Then it says ‘emotionally stunted techie but just possibly a cool one who cracks codes for MI5.’

“Wearing your rucksack over both shoulders just says, ‘Still lives with his mother’.

“The rucksack was half open yesterday and he had what looked like a high tech laptop but also some couscous in a Tupperware box.

“Let’s just say I don’t think they eat couscous at MI5.”
