Spellcheck has a lot to answer for...



I spotted the above sign on Saturday. It seems that we may be at war with Australia before we know it and that the slave trade is alive and well. *thinks* 99p is a bargain though...

I was on the Victoria line last night and several times heard the driver say “We’re running a special service tonight. Ignore the destination on the train as all Victoria line trains say Seven Sister’s. When we get there I’ll tell you if the train is going any further”. He kept repeating this as though thee was nothing odd about this at all. I like to think that the Victoria line was running a Magical Mystery Tour though and we could all have ended up somewhere very exciting. So not Walthamstow then.

Love the picture, gave me a giggle.

I enjoy going on the tube, but then I only manage to do so once or twice a year, so that's probably why.

spudgy - there used to be conductors on the tube??

TF - it was one of those things where I had to do a double take, but I thought definitely deserved a photo!

debs - glad it made you laugh. The tube can be an acquired taste and one that I might not be too sad to shrug off some time...
