Luckily my morning is brightened occasionally by the fabulous transport worker on the southbound platform of the Bakerloo line at Paddington station. The workers on the platforms are there to make sure nobody gets stuck in the doors and that everyone makes space for each other, and that everyone stays behind the yellow line as they should so no accidents occur to inconvenience the rest of us. They make boring announcements on their bullhorns to this effect, but my dude takes it upon himself to say funny and interesting things. Here are a couple of his gems:
"Good morning ladies and gentlemen. It's Monday morning already, but don't worry, it only happens once a week."
"Please move right down inside the carriages... that's right. Pack yourselves in like sardines!"
It always makes me smile... which is no easy task given that I tend to wait until I'm at work to have my first coffee, before which I am about as charming as an angry rhino.
