Is it any of your business if anybody rush past after you to avoid tapping in for train station fare?

I come down to West End in London every week and I tried to rush past after a lady that tapped in so I don't have to tap in and pay and expense. She stopped and said "Are you gonna pay your own fares?", I just moved over to the next one and realised the security has started looking on our side and decided to just tap in and pay it.

Idk how it was any of her business to act like a snitch. I'm now afraid that she might report it to the train station and start flicking over their cctv.

I feel like I don't want to do it with these snooty, racist white women anymore that can take a chance to snitch or be nasty to you. I'll find another random person who would even be kind to just ignore me.

    The world isn't your oyster and could end up being a giant clam.

    I once used the DLR for a whole week without tapping in and out. I lost my bank card and Oyster that week. I didn’t get caught. It’s been years now.

    Yes. We don't think cheats are smart any more.  They cost us money by providing the excuse to raise fares.  Sociopathic, like drink or drugs driving; on the way to being thought of as parasites.

    Yes, it is my business, because the payments by every one of us help to keep transport going. Lack of payment by some means higher payment by others, or by taxpayers.

    It's their business if you're squashing them in to cheat the fares. It's not a race thing; it's theft. Pay your fare.

    Yes it is you were not only being ignorant and rude its also illegal so that make it everyone's business especially all the honest fare paying passengers I hope they do find you and prosecute you because you deserve it.. It's people like you who ruin it for other thinking you can travel without paying your fare. Why do you say that she was snooty and racist did she make a remark about the colour of your skin or ethnicity if not you have no reason to call her racist.
