15m would be close in between Germany and England. It's possible that the German station didn't hear the English station and you were very strong. If I can only hear one side of the converstion I listen to a few qsos to get the station's signing clear pattern so I know when to call him..even so, without hearing the other station I could still be causing QRM.
I'd give the other 2 stations the benefit of the doubt

Subject:  A question ?
This morning I was doing my usual CQing on 15m when I got into a conversation with a station in England. Before I could even sign with him I had 2 station (Italy & Germany) cover up the English station by calling me.
So, my question is : is this typical rude behavior these days or just a couple of impatient newbies ? Needless to say, I didn't work either of two stations. I've handled pileups before and most have been patient enough to standby until I finished QSO.
