The train I’m on had been sat in the starting station for 20 minutes with no real explanation as to why (which came as no surprise).
What I found amusing were the huffer puffers; the commuters who feel it necessary to huff and puff to show they’re annoyed and inconvenienced. I swear these people have the deluded idea that the more they huff and the louder they puff, the sooner the train will leave.
Anyway, the amusing thing about these carbon dioxide producing dickheads and their vocal exhalations is when their overwhelming need to ‘beat the system’ backfires.
Allow me to clarify.
The guard’s cockney voice came on the tannoy to apologise for the delay and that we’ll be underway at some point, but he didn’t know when. The HPs all HP’d in unison and started filing off the train like some trade union strike.
This was clearly in an attempt to ‘stick it to the man’ by jumping on a later train that will no doubt leave the station earlier than this one.
No sooner had about 8 people got off, the doors shut and the train pulled away.
Ha ha! Gutted.
The plants are going to have to photosynthesise for England tonight.
