1st Post - Morning Amusement

Seems C2C now has a free Wifi service (trial of course) and I thought I would take advantage and use it to distract myself from the inane ramblings and all the coughs and sneezes currently bouncing round my rail carriage.

Rather amusingly a young lady boarded the train this morning on her way to Laindon for her first day at work. Unfortunately for her, this train doesn't stop until its arrival at Fenchurch Street. Apparently the sign at the train station wasn't obvious enough when it indicated it's final destination including where it would be stopping also the way. When she remarked "I did wonder why the 2nd train listed all the stations but this one didn't!" it was all I could do to keep a straight face and ask if she would like to borrow my phone to call and advise of her late arrival.

Brightened my day :-)
