I was standing at a bus stop this afternoon listening to Clap Hands by Tom Waits on my phone and by all accounts I was minding my own business, but a man came up to me, pulled out my earphones and said:

"If an ants were the size of humans they'd be able to lift a double decker bus". As if that was supposed to scare me.

"But they aren't the size of humans, are they?" I said "They're tiny, so there's nothing to worry about." I put my earphones back in my ears, but it was no good, the song had already finished. That was the second time this week that I'd been defeated by my phone not having a rewind button.

Jane, London.
