@SoVeryBritish I mean, it's not like you're going to ask him to move over, is it? And where is your coat going to go once it's off, anyway? @SoVeryBritish Do you sweat until you faint and expire or do you shuffle your arms out of the sleeves and risk upsetting the cup? @SoVeryBritish The horror that the man next to you on the train has an open cup of tea next to his laptop and you need to take your coat off
