Seat reservations on trains

The system works!

in continental Europe

poor child, leaving the pencil case their dead granny knitted them on the train. Are you going to start a social media campaign to get it back to them ?

It’s obviously crocheted.

I don’t know if you did it on purpose but the sad mouth eyes thing is really pulling my heartstrings.

(you have to look sideways to see it)

Wagnum has obviously managed to land himself a job on the trains

Wonderful

As someone who despises the awful experience of trying to get on a packed train from London to manc ,for example, my anxiety was always some what reduced knowing I had a specific seat just for me so I can relax and calm down. When some one is sat in it and refusing to move AND EYE ROLLING AFTER ASKING THEM TO OH SORRY CAN YOU MOVE PLEASE “well I thought you could go anywhere” NO YOU DIDNT IT SAYS RESERVED ABOVE YOUR HEAD DON’T DO THIS TO ME FUCKING HELL WHAT IS WRONG WITH ANYONE FOLLOWING THE VISUAL CUES AND SNEERING AFTER I FUCKING HAVE TO PROVE IT BY SHOWING YOU MY TICKET that you had the cheek to ask for…

you people make me want to cry

I feel like there’s a lot of potential for this to cross over both with the Lonzo balloon, and dots’ room plan whale. I look forward to seeing this new character join the rogues gallery of DiS memes.

Nah… I just spent 30 seconds in MS Paint doing what @Richie_Ronco said.

I was getting a train the other day.
And the train was cancelled with a replacement bus service.
And some lads turned up with bikes and their train tickets.
And the bus man was all ‘you can’t bring those 2 wheelers on here!!!’
And the lads were all ‘well how do we get home then?’
And then there was a bit of a back and forth argument, and then one of the lads tried to force himself onto the bus, and the bus driver was all ‘I’m not moving this bus!!! Get away from the bus!!!’ And then one of the other lads started filming it all on his phone saying he was going to put it on YouTube, and then eventually we managed to escape on the bus with the bike lads left at the station.

But how were they meant to get home?

How come?

You automatically get allocated a specific seat on the trains here and I vastly prefer it this way. (You can also pick one online of course but point is everyone gets a specific seat.)

Too obvious a response I’m afraid! Very sorry!

If they’d booked bike slots, then the onus is on the train company to book them a taxi with space for bikes.

Also, I always adopt the @antpocalypsenow awkward sorry method, and it hasn’t failed me once.

Also also, why didn’t one of her kids give her the seat?

Also also also they got seats in first class, which is solid work on their part.

Nice thread, this.

I imagine the kids didn’t give her their seat because some teenagers standing up for a bit wouldn’t get as much of that sweet sweet attention as ‘pregnant mum stands up a bit’

Old people were definitely dickheads though. Unless they were ill or something.
