    Default Train; it just had to go wrong didn't it?

    Up to now, it was an extremely pleasant journey. I have a seat, t'internet's working, I have an electrical socket, the train is clean, and an attractive girl has just played some Bach cello suites.

    Now some f**king OAP has got on the train with an exceedingly smelly sandwich!

    WHY can't people consider other passengers when taking their packed lunches/dinners on the train?

    I don't know what noxious mixture of processed sauces and blue-boiled eggs she's put on that sandwich, but it reeks!

    Only one thing for it, time to start farting!

    And now the train is sitting still due to a points failure, as per bloody usual!

    Well I just completed a 26 hour commute. Vienna to London became:

    Vienna - Berlin - Frankfurt - London. Sleeping in an airport is so overrated!


    And I get to do it all again on Monday

    Should have stayed in Vienna.

    Mind, I could have just stayed in the Hague, which is rather nice too.

    I bet the oap is ranting on the oap equivilent website about the young man whose farts smell and why can't he have consideration for people who are trying to eat their sandwiches.

    You should say something. "Excuse me, I like a good sandwich as much as the next, however if you continue to insist eating that sandwich then I must warn you I might all over you"

    I haven't started yet. Unfortunately I missed lunch today, so I have insufficient organic material in my bowels for the normal fermentation procedure to be executed, meaning I am resigned to the fate of sitting in the smelly sandwich coupe.

    I had to get off the tram a stop early because I could no longer stand the stench of stale piss from the tramp occupying the other end. Most unpleasant.
    While you're waiting, read the free novel we sent you. It's a Spanish story about a guy named 'Manual.'

    I know, it's bad. My legs are starting to hurt now; that's what happens when I get hungry. Shall soon be eating a large serving of game stew.
