Bing bong

24Jun10

Because I don’t travel around as much as I used to, I miss out on many comic moments. Such as the announcements made by reluctant train staff thrust into the front line of customer service by an edict to “keep the customer informed”.

So I was lucky this evening to be on a delayed train where I could enjoy two separate classics of the announcement genre.

“This train has stopped”… Well, yes… “due to a build up of trains on the line in front”… like dental plaque or limescale perhaps.

Fortunately they got the pressure washer out and cleared the build up quickly. We were soon on our way again.

An hour later… “We may be slightly delayed before we enter Norwich station…if the driver has to change ends”.

Happily we arrived before the half-time whistle.
