AN unidentified woman has been filmed amiably conversing with a stranger on the London Underground.
36-year-old languages teacher Tom Booker used his iPhone to record the incident of politeness, which lasted for almost two minutes.
He said: “She kept looking over at him, I naturally assumed she was going to tell him to fuck off back where he came from, call him a dirty old perv, or just deliver a steely death stare. Everyday London stuff, you know.
“Instead she gestured to the book he was reading and said, ‘I like Game of Thrones too, have you seen it on telly?’
“He replied that he hadn’t but would like to. She said it was good and mentioned a couple of actors in it that she liked.
“The rest of the carriage sat silently while self-consciously tinkering with their phones.
“Walking up the platform afterwards I felt a bit sick, like I had just hallucinated being in a scene from a Hollywood film.
“Then someone barged straight into me and growled ‘fuckwit’ under his breath like it was my fault. I was okay again after that.”
