trains were delayed this evening at paddington. when this happens you can never be sure which platform your train will come in to.
i took a punt (a risk, not a boat) and went to platform 13 which is where the 17:52 usually goes from. on the way I saw this wripped up piece of paper on the floor.
it was telling me to ‘turn’. this would have taken me to platform 12 of course (as anyone familliar with paddington station will be able to tell you).
i ignored the warning and continued, taking my life in to my own hands.
i waited at platform 13 for a while and …
the train turned up as usual.
therefore, we shouldn’t always believe what we read. remember that. it could come in useful. you heard it hear last.
