Bad start

It was not a good start.

Arriving at the station at 0630 only to find they were already warning of disruption near East Croydon. Apparently, once again, a poor soul had tried to occupy the same space as an oncoming train, at the same time. As previously observed, this does not usually work out well for the human - nor for that matter, the train driver.

The journey ended up taking an extra 30 mins, but was diverted to London Bridge - which actaully turned out to be fairly convenient.

The Gorse Fox will draw a veil across proceeding during the day. Suffice it to say that a certain person sent the Gorse Fox about seven or eight emails this morning - each asking a question or clarification. Some people have too much time on their hands.

The journey home was also problematic. First they switched platforms, then the laid on a shorter train than usual. As a result, the Gorse Fox had to stand for the first hour of his journey. This is not befitting a gentleman of his years and standing.
