Coming back from London today I had the misfortune to travel with Virgin Trains. It was standing room only, which was bad enough, but the on board train attendants or what ever their called, insisted on making inane announcements. The one that irritated me the most was;
“Will passengers wishing to go to the toilet please make sure that they read the instructions on how use the toilet before they use it.”
What do they expect us to do to it? Maybe there were a lot of stupid people on board, but unless you have been living in an isolated part of the world or maybe the rural parts of France, you will be hard pushed not to recognise the toilet and secondly have a pretty good idea how to use it.
Then just as the train pulled away from Stafford (its first stop) and things had thinned out a little bit, and there was a chance that I could go and get a drink from the on board shop they announced that it was closed. The Beardy one has a lot to answer for, smug git.
