Many years ago I saw a drunken ladette, stumble onto a tube train at Chancery Lane. There were no seats, but she turned her attention to the well-dressed City gent reading the FT.
‘Ere mate’ she said pointing at him ‘If you were a Gentleman, you’d gimme your seat’.
The City chap turned down the corner of his FT and said ‘Madam, if you were a Lady I would’.
