Sodding Typical

I took the tube to the Barbican today because when I woke up my little legs were tired after all their adventures yesterday. It’s a shame nobody mentioned that to the lifts at the Elephant which chose this morning to break down. I’d mind it less if they weren’t the lifts that said ‘Stand clear of the doors please’ in a really irritated tone of voice, and that’s before anyone’s even tried holding the doors open. I do think that if you’re going to put in passive-aggressive machinery into your public transport system, you should try and ensure it works reliably before it starts getting all stroppy on the paying customer (or in the case of Elephant and Castle, the leaping over the barrier customer). But maybe that’s just me?
