Bridging the gap

 

Sir, – On a very pleasant train journey recently, we were constantly reminded to “Mind the gap”. At the umpteenth mention, a young lady opposite shared my rueful smile, then returned to her book, with her two feet planted firmly on the seat in front.

For some reason, the other constant reminder, “Please do not put your feet on seats”, seemed to escape her attention entirely. – Yours, etc,
