I would pack as I go if I could use my own bags without:
(You can add these to my fully irk list if you like).
THE TRAIN HAS STOPPED. STOP HOLDING ON TO THE BANNISTERS/RAILS YOU FUCKING MOUTHBREATHERS YOU’RE IN THE WAY
THE TRAIN HAS ONLY JUST LEFT THE LAST STATION. THERE’S NO NEED TO PUSH YOUR WAY PAST EVERYONE ELSE WHO IS ALSO GETTING OFF AT THE NEXT STOP YOU FUCKING MOUTHBREATHERS, YOU’RE MAKING THIS LESS COMFORTABLE FOR EVERYONE.
Scan it and lob in on the scale; pack after.
I’m convinced it’s actually quicker than tossing about with machines that throw a mardy any time the weight changes for a second.
Yeah this is another real anger. “sorry i need to get off here. excuse me. i’m getting off next. EXCUSE ME.”
go to hell
Yeah, it is such a time consuming and annoying process if you’re using your own bags. The assistant is always busy with someone else and it’s actually quicker to just put the items in the bagging area and put them in the bag afterwards.
Yesterday’s irksome incident was “The driver has been instructed to wait at this stop for a few minutes in order to regulate the service.”
We were four stops from the end of the route! Seriously?! Regulate the fucking service when the passengers have all got off in five minutes’ time. No one new is getting on for the last three bloody stops! FFS.
fu i like crisps
Yeah, but regulating the service probably allows for a gap that helps with crowd control as people disembark, or allows for a gap into which a returning train can fit as it comes out of the terminus.
I am in complete agreement with @colinzealuk, @DirtyPJ and @sadpunk on the bagging area thing.
Those people are the absolute worst
Buzzfeed ‘tourism porn’ articles with a headline variation of ‘X number of reasons why you shouldn’t visit X’. Fuck off and die with your saccharine sarcasm.
in that situation you absolutely have to make it clear to everyone in the room that you have been wronged but in a sort of jokey (but also deadly serious) way
“can’t believe you took ALL THE MICE. haha.”
The best one I saw was one winter when the BBC sent a London-based reporter to Achnasheen to stand in some particularly heavy snow. No interviews with locals, no accidents or events to report, they just placed her out in the fucking cold and cut to her once every half an hour to ask her if it was still as freezing as it was 30 minutes ago.
The busy wasn’t packed. The bus stopped for five minutes on Hornsey Rise (N19) and the terminus is outside the YMCA on Crouch End Broadway (N8). No reason for it, just an inconvenience to passengers. I think they just like fucking with us.
Yeah this is complete bullshit. Surely it takes exactly the same amount of time if you pack after as it does if you pack during?
Some of them are absolutely pants at recognising your bags.
when it’s rained and a wobbly paving slap shoots a jet of puddle water up your shoes/trousers (banned act)
Oh, it was a bus? I thought you meant a train.
Depends how frequent the bus is, really. If it’s only three times an hour, or to a set time, keeping the service regulated helps passengers and driver changeovers.
