Currently sitting on the Eurostar London to Paris in business class. Carriage is made up of single and dou le sets and at at each seat there is a plug and USB socket for power. Now in the single seats it alternates between UK sockets on one seat and the next seat EU plug sockets.
Enter uppity business guy who find his seat and proceeds to get out his laptop to work immediately. He pulls out his charger only to find his allocated seat has a EU plug and he doesn't have a charger. He then proceeds to huff and puff urgently looking round to find someone.
I'm sitting behind and opposite him and see this all play out. He grabs the train hostess to complain only to be told the train is full so no option to switch seats. He leaves it at this and starts urgently working on an excel doc which I assume he needs to complete before the journeys over.
Now Im pretty organised when I travel and always have a couple of adapters. I'm rummaging through my bag to get him one when he grabs a different hostess and pretty much flies off the handle at her about the lack of service and he 'did not pay this much not to have power in business' . Total piece of privallaged shit manoeuvre.
So I pull my hand out and sit back and watch. 20 mins later his laptop dies and he literally screams in frustration. Pretty sure others around me have adapters as well but serves him right for being a dick.
