A First time for everything

Twenty to six. The height of the evening rush hour. So what faced me as I entered Leeds station? A cancelled service. So three trains-worth of commuters were trying to pack onto two trains - one local stopper and a later express. Result - chaos.
Just when you think they've reached a nadir, First still manage to surprise you. Their incompetency really does know no bounds.

What were you doing leaving work so early ? If you had finished at 5.30pm and got the 6pm train, you'd have got a seat.

I left bang on half past. I just walk quicker when I'm not waiting for lethargic colleagues.
