It's slightly off topic but I think I need to share this one and get it out of my system.
I am undergoing fertility treatment and during the process I met a lovely lady whose ivf just failed. We catch the train together to the morning blood tests some days. Today was such a day.
We ended up in one of the quite carriages but didn't realise it and my lovely friend had a mental break down and told me how upset she is about the ivf failure and so on. It's totally understandable.
The woman sitting behind us (she can clearly see my friend was struggling and could clearly hear why) told her to shut the f... up! Seriously. The woman was in her 50s.
I understand we were not supposed to talk in the carriage but there is no need to be rude. You don't tell anyone to shut up. If you have something to say then you can do so nicely. I would not have had an issue as such if the woman were to say "please keep it down" in a nice way but "shut the f up"???
Needless to say my friend got really upset after that and I feel terrible that had to happen to her. As if infertility isn't enough to deal with.
I am just shocked...
