Yesterday after a very gruelling day at work I went to the station to catch the train home. There was no one in the ticket office and the usual thing to do is just jump on the train and pay the conductor for the ticket. I don't do that very often as I usually buy a return from my little local un manned station. I had assumed that the ticket office was closed for the night as I never get the train after 5pm. Nasty little jobsworth insisted on me going back to the ticket office to buy a ticket. I was so tired after a very verrrrry long day that I could have cried. There are one or two conductors on the line that clearly have no joy in life and will do their utmost to start or end your day on a sour note........ and then there are the really lovely ones who will go the extra mile to be helpful. Hey ho, today is another day so I shall see what it has in store.
