Tonight’s train announcement was so good I just had to blog about it.
We were sat at East Croydon station for a prolonged amount of time when the speaker system fired up with….
“Good evening ladies and gentlemen, this is your conductor speaking. I’m sorry we’re currently being held at the station a little longer than expected. I have no idea why we’re being delayed. There are two platform staff a little further down from me but neither of them have had the decency to come over and actually tell me whats going on, so I’m in the dark just as much as you are. I will be taking it up with their manager as this is a poor example of customer service”.
I sensed the words “wankers”, “twats” and “hapless” were on the tip of his tongue, but I couldn’t be sure.
There were a few smiles amongst my fellow commuters.
I’m pretty sure I actually saw someone high five him as he walked up the train checking tickets. Then again, it could’ve been a slap. I’ve known it to happen.
