Due to signal/points failure/no driver there will be .........

Get Labour in to renationalise the railways and sort this chaos out.

There! Politics in the 1st post.

I only talk politics when I'm drunk.

Two people having a loud conversation on the bus when no one else is talking.

Generally anyone expressing any form on happiness on the bus.

Any other person doing anything at all on the bus.

Bus drivers.

I don't see that the second part necessarily follows from the first.

Automatic Passport Gates.

No I cannot take off my glasses and then follow instructions on a screen I can no longer see. Fucking awful things.

Let's look at things from the positive side.

A lovely National Express coach driver said to nobody in particular, "Look at those buzzards. We usually see them here around this time of year."

A Green Line coach driver en route from Luton airport to Victoria was asked if he didn't hate London traffic. He said he loved his job as it was a doddle compared to the shift work he used to do at a factory.

Try keeping your glasses on. The ones at Heathrow, at least, seem to work on bespectacled people.

anyway, a thing that pisses me right fucking off - online check in. Because it doesn't make any sense (surely checking in is what you do to say you've arrived at the airport and are there to board the plane), but mostly because you have to go through it all again when you get to the airport anyway (sometimes twice).

Stansted insisted on taking glasses off. This still didn't work and I was forced to take out my 2nd passport.

I haven't bragged about gaining dual nationality for a while

HoHoHoff - 11 Dec 2019 12:51:10 (#10 of 178)

I don't get the point of check-in. Is it a throwback to the days when passengers could bring on extra baggage in the hold without taking out a 2nd mortgage?

bossab2 - 11 Dec 2019 12:54:42 (#11 of 178)

Yep.

Hence checked baggage.

And they're racist.

I dislike the way my bra underwires always set off the alarm on airport scanners.

Peacock - 11 Dec 2019 14:34:59 (#14 of 178)

people having sex in the train toilets, really annoying

Tenesmus - 11 Dec 2019 14:35:13 (#15 of 178)

Sorry.

it's pretty easy, coz, if you know how. maybe ask someone younger and more tech literate to guide you through?

cozzer - 11 Dec 2019 14:37:11 (#17 of 178)

Maybe you need some reading comprehension, did I say I found it hard?

Peacock - 11 Dec 2019 14:40:06 (#18 of 178)

coz, it does make sense, it saves time. as I said maybe you need someone to help you

cozzer - 11 Dec 2019 14:42:58 (#19 of 178)

How does it save time doing it twice?

Peacock - 11 Dec 2019 14:44:58 (#20 of 178)

coz coz you don't do it twice
