i had an interesting journey home this evening. First of all i had a comedy chap with a jovial drunk at Borough tube station. he was harmless and bonkers and i enjoyed his company.
then on my Bakerloo train two very angry and very toothless drunk people got on and started shouting in a different language at people in the carriage so i got off and waited for the next train. this proved a good plan as there was an announcement on my second train saying we were being delayed at Edgware Road because of an incident on my original train …
so i walked from Edgware Road down to Paddington and on the way found a man in a wheel chair stuck down a hole in the pavement. his electrically powered vehicle refused to propel him as he was at the wrong angle. i ended up lifting his chair (and him) down the street a bit so he was on the flat and could self power again !
finally, when i got to paddington i went to upgrade my mobile phone which said it cost £10 in the brochure but thanks to progress had now increased to £120, so i didn’t bother.
just when i thought it couldn’t get any more bizarre, along came old nigel havers
