A Conversation On A Double Decker Bus

This scene took place on the top of a double decker bus this morning at about 8.30 am. Both guy and girl appeared to be in their mid twenties. If I were her the conversation would have got locked off at the first insult, but then again I wouldn’t be sitting on a bus dropping in causal conversation with an acquaintance anything about a pregnancy miscarriage.

Caught Red-Handed With An Out Of Date Travelcard

I got to the station this morning and since I have been late to work 50 percent of the time in the past month, I made the conscious decision not to queue for a ticket as it would have resulted in me missing the train and making me late again. I got on the train with my out of date ticket, hoping I could just flash my old one to get through, or even better flash nothing if there were no inspectors and then just buy a new valid one in the station.

Major Terrorist Attack – No More Hand Luggage

I turn on the radio at work. This is what I hear: 10 planes targets, Hand luggage. . . liquid explosives…Attack imminent… High alert… Raids last night… 21 arrested. I did not know any of this till I got into work. This morning I arrived at the tube station and there are signs up saying that if you are travelling to the airport that no hand luggage is being allowed, apart from absolute essentials in a plastic bag.

This morning I got on the train without a ticket. When I left from home this was not my intention, but it just happened. As it was a Bank Holiday yesterday, the queue to buy tickets for the train this morning was horrendous. I had 5 minutes before my train was to come and there was no way that I would get served before the train’s arrival.
