Blimey, how do I have 363 people following me? I haven't tweeted anything in a week - maybe I should start posting some more mundane things
Weather's been too hot the past few weeks - the one time we get some sun over here we still bloody moan and complain
Trains have been unusually reliable - been a good few days without a single delay or cancellation for me
Still barley anyone checking tickets though, People saying that the Cross-City line is the most fare-dodged in the Midlands or whatever don't seem to realize that there is literally no one to check your ticket.
Unless you're at New Street, ticket barriers are always stuck open or non-existent, while the inspectors (when they're actually on the train) rarely patrol further than the 3rd car - absolutely hopeless.
The Tube has 270 stations, the vast majority with ticket barriers to let you through - somehow I only know of less than a dozen stations out of the 24 on the line with ticket barriers even installed, let alone working half the time.
Well I'll be damned, that was more whinging than I had hoped. Looks like I'm gonna retreat into my bunker for another week until I have more complaints.
Here's a photo of a cat and an amusingly old-fashioned gate since I noticed my feed was lacking in the photo department lately.
