New Rule [Jan. 17th, 2007|09:44 am]
Listen in, listen Ian!
Can we introduce a license for using the tube during the rush hour? Anyone
who stood in the middle of the open doors at a station looking blank and
gazing around vacantly would fail the test. Yes, you, man at Covent Garden
today.

I gained my certificate of merit in advanced queue jumping this morning,
thanks to my ever helpful colleague who left the house 10 minutes before I
did to reserve my place in the queue for me. There was nobody left at the
stop who was there before me, and I didn't get a seat, so there was no harm
done really. Bus queues though, eh, they're anarchy aren't they? Chuh!

Except the one for the 100 at Liverpool Street, where people line up properly in single file along side the road. I've learned my lesson there. Hoh yes. Tuts and stares and death.

i've never rly noticed "proper" queuing for a bus, this is possibly because the bus stops i use are served by many busses and thus queuing wouldn't make much sense...

this is the only stop i've ever seen it at. still doesn't make sense, as 2 other buses stop there as well, but you still MUST QUEUE.

Round Crouch End we actually hang people who push into the W7 queue.

But the W7 is a magical bus that you can only find the stops for if you know the password.

I reckon 'W' stands for 'Wave at a corner'. the W11 (I think!) in Walthamstow is a MAGICK bus that has no stops at all, seems to route itself through bits of town that aren't there, and stops if you stand on a corner and wave your arm around a bit. Ace!

That might have been the one I meant. Er.

The U10 does that as well. Handy to know, if any of you are ever passing by my old secondary school...

Nuh-uh, round Crouch End we have people who threaten to stab you to death for *telling them off* for pushing in!

Yup, I've queued for that bus many times.
