There will be a fatal incident soon and it will be all YOUR fault!

Yes you! Yes you!

  • You who cannot commute properly.
  • You who twalk – the art of texting while walking down the street.
  • You who ride a bloody Brompton bike where you shouldn’t
  • You who walk down thee street watching a movie on your iPad
  • You who listen to crap music from silly oversized headphones that make you look like a prat!

You basically think you are more important than everyone else around you.

Yes you will be the cause of a fatality soon.

Why do I have to write this?

I don’t normally bang on about the fact that I am disabled but some things have got to come to a head. The amount of hassle that commuting has become because some people do not have a clue is amazing. I choose to crack on with my life and my work and make the best of it. I shouldn’t have to put up with crap like this!

Recent incidents Include:

A Brompton bike rider knocking me over with his bloody bike on the train. I took a fall.

A Brompton bike rider nearly knocking me over whilst he was riding down the platform at Victoria.

2 incidents where I have been pushed over by stupid impatient people who wont look where they are going.

The stand out classic personally was the impatient blonde bint who nearly pushed me under a train at Victoria Station. Judging by the back pack you were wearing you work for PWC. I cant tell you how much I shat myself when I hit the side of that train. I was lucky to recover it and it left me very shaken. The fear of staring into that gap between the train and the platform is one I have no desire to repeat.

Its not just me that this happens to. Its other disabled people, parents with young children and pregnant women. Indeed I saw a pregnant women pushed over on the tube the other day by some inconsiderate twat.

But the final one goes to the young Asian chap with oversized headphones in Wimbledon who nearly got run over by an ambulance on blues and twos which was clearly taking an emergency to St Georges Hospital. Sorry pal, why should an ambulance on a life saving run have to brake for you because you cannot cross a road properly?

So before there is a fatality that is YOUR fault. Learn how to commute properly.

Network Rail

As some of you may know I live quite close to a railway line. Every 2 months or so I get kept awake by engineers working on the tracks usually with heavy machinery. I have taken Network Rail to task in the past for failing the basic communications test of letting people know before you keep them awake all night. I was therefore quite surprised to open a letter this morning from Network Rail informing me that they are going to be keeping me awake all night over the next three weekends. Its a start I suppose. Next task for Network Rail? Work out how to perform engineering works in complete silence please. I know I am not the only one who will rejoice if they can sort that one out!

Its only snow!

Is it me or am I the only one dismayed by the poor level of service displayed by train companies during this snowy weather. Special timetables, trains not running, trains delayed, trains cancelled mid journey with no explanation and much more. This sort of thing dosen’t happen on mainland Europe. Its only snow get used to it and use it as an excuse to run a proper train service please! I now know why First Capital connect’s nickname is First Crapital Connect!
