9.06 Twenty Minutes Late ('lost' the driver)
I should’ve known really. It always happens when the clocks go back.
At PoshTown a man who has just disembarked gesticulates to the conductor. "Hang on!" he shouts: “There’s an Old Guy coming”.
The ‘old guy’ in question appears on the platform. He must be eighty. He makes all the haste he can. He rushes, but it's painfully slow, towards the train until he is within a couple of yards of the still open door.
"beep beep beep beep"
The conductor closes the door, right in the Old Guy's face.
Henceforth he shall be known as RightBastardConductor.
In 'other news'
“I buy some shoes!!!”
It really happened. I went into Clarks and came out with two pairs. Nothing special (they are shoes after all) but they should see me right till 2009.
