I’m stuck on a packed train just outside East Croydon with a 3G signal going up and down like a local girl’s knickers.
Luckily I’ve been here about 45mins because apparently someone got hit by a train earlier today.
I’ve got another hour of this at least. Joy joy joy!! (claps hands excitedly until blood is drawn)
I can understand getting hit by a car or a boat because they could come from any direction, but a train is pretty much on rails if I’m not mistaken, and therefore it’s easy to predict where they might be coming from; left, or right.
I don’t mean to speak ill of the dead or the seriously injured, but….
In addition to all this, the woman next to me is talking VERY LOUDLY TO HER CHILDREN ON THE PHONE AND SAYING THAT “MUMMY WILL BE HOME SOON” AND THEY NEED TO “STOP BEING SAD”. She’s actually said this about 37 times.
She’s just asked her child where her monkey is, and if they’ve warmed it up.
Strange…when I do that it’s frowned upon.
Now she’s trying to connect to them via facetime on her iPad. That will be amazing; to hear her whiny kids first hand. I mean, she’s talking to them on the phone… so why do it on the iPad for all of us to experience?
Oh, 38 times.
She’s also just told her fucking offspring that she’s going to the dentist to get her gold tooth replaced.
The woman opposite me is reading her book, resting her head on her very, very clenched fist.
Oh look, facetime has connected.
Now she’s talking to them on her phone AND waving at them on her iPad. What is the purpose of that?
39 times. Right that’s it.
Today there will be more than one train fatality.
