an idiot in london


Thursday, 27th April.
So polite, so shy

On the train home this evening, it was crowded as usual. At one station the doors closed and then opened a couple of times as the driver attempted to pull out of the station. The PA crackled into life, and a shy voice softly came over the airwaves:

"Yeah hi everyone. I know it's crowded tonight, but could you, umm... kind of umm... stand clear of the doors? Thanks."

The people on the train actually giggled.
