    At least the metropolitan line has those new, spacious trains. We're stuck with old ones...

    This thread is exactly why I never want to live in London again :rofl:

    The escalator thing drives me nuts. It's so dangerous!

    I'm getting stressed out just reading this :lol:
    Honestly I feel so insecure on the underground. What if I'm walking too slowly? What if I'm not letting people on the train because I'm in their way? Should I let this person sit down? What are other people thinking about me right now? Is my music too loud?
    Eeeekkkk

    But the London Underground is what makes London, London!

    Nympho, mate, you have equally be really harsh towards me and even though your replies are wack, it's still deemed as bullying I'll get carded and then I'll bring out the race card and get you carded yeah *****

    Oh and it only triggers you because you know that deep down you are a nymph.



    Stay on topic... And stop derailing.
    I don't even know what race you are mate :hand:

    Anyway white people can still be on the end of racist treatment. E.g. AG won't marry me because I'm white and not South Asian.

    I'm a nymph in one definition of the word yes, but not in the definition that you embody.


    Disclaimer- I feel anyone reading mine and Zulu's interactions should know we are joking and this is our way of expressing the deep love we have for each other. Her roasts are amazing though, and they far surpass anything I can come up with :sad:

    Never mind trains,what about lifts?
    That's what I have or at least had a problem with.
    It's incredible how slowly people get onto lifts.

    For some reason the people at the front of a large crowd of people waiting for a lift(think Covent Garden on a late Saturday afternoon)seem to deliberately walk into the lift soooooo slowly!As if it's a new adventure for them.Or perhaps they simply don't realise that the lift doors only stay open for a minute or so. Or perhaps they simply forgot they are at the head of a big queue.

    I don't know what it is. I just always make sure I'm near the front of the queue.

    Hmmm, but the Jubilee line is alright for me, if I need it I get it from Stratford where the train is empty.
    I think I've used suburban trains once or twice, but they always confuse me...
    Nope deffo, I used it once and it was like any other train...
    The main, non underground trains I used were the Eurostar, Heathrow Connect and Gatwick Express...

    You what else is gut wrenchingly awful?

    Watching someone who has never been on a train before trying to buy a ticket one from one of those forsaken, unfit for purpose, dodgy touch screen, painfully slow ticket machines with a 12kb/h dial up connection running on windows 95 in the station.

    First they're like... hmmm, where do I want to go today?! (Scroll through every train station available, takes the page 3 seconds load each time). Hmmmm.... what kind of ticket do I want? Single? Oh no, let's go back... hmm... what's a railcard... oh no I don't have one of them.... Alright, let's pay. Oh right, I need to find my card. *Searches for card in bag* *Machine times out* *Back to square one*

    Argghhhhhh..... I've missed my train because of this a few times :lol:

    Yeh, Jubilee line on the other side for me, but they get packed within 3 or so stops.

    JBlondon you have a great story about travelling on trains. Maybe now is the time to bring it out?

    Spoiler:
    Show
    When my train arrived at Bond Street, and I was fortunate enough to have a seat, a (very clearly) pregnant lady boarded the train. Naturally, not wanting to disappoint my mother or my old mentor at British Airways, I immediately offered her my seat.You would have thought I had accused her of being Kim-Jong-Il’s buttock warmer.

    ‘How dare you offer me your seat, don’t you know I’m perfectly capable of standing just like you? I’m not some weak woman who need’s a man’s help. There’s nothing I can’t do without a man’ said the pregnant woman ironically.

    ‘I was just…’ I tried, hoping that people wouldn't suddenly decide to listen in and think I was guilty of some shocking crime against her.‘If I want your help, I’ll ask for it, but I never will because I don’t need ignorant people telling me where to sit and how to live. Sit back down you arrogant ****hole’.

    There are very few moments in my life I can confess to being utterly speechless. This was number 4.I tried to compose a suitable reply in my head. I was deciding whether to be the bigger man (or person I suppose would be apt here), or whether to give her 100 lashes. I was just about to open my mouth, when the lady that was sitting next to me said to the independent one:‘Oh belt up you ugly old trout, he was being kind. I hope your baby doesn’t turn out as ugly as your attitude’.

    I'm not white, therefore I can pull any race card I want

    Damnnnn, AG has just made my day... don't worry, you'll find some weird guy from TSR, he might not be South Asian though and may be 60 years old

    Disclaimer: Nympho doesn't realise but our interactions are not jokes and I take this matter seriously. There is no deep love, only deep envy from Nymphos side towards me as I am far better than her at everything. Even my voice is more seductive and sexier than hers and not as high either

    The fact that I can't be with the love of my life shouldn't have made your day. That's just cruel. I'm gonna cry to him now about you. He thinks that you are desperate anyway. Especially for BBC.

    What race are you though?

    Oh Nympho, unlike you, I don't care what people of TSR think of me thirsty for BBC? Nah mate, I already have one to satisfy me so this thirstiness you see is just a facade.

    You don't need to know what race I am? Why does race matter? Just because I'm not white doesn't mean I'm not as privileged. Oh wait, it does

    Disclaimer: TNTT and Imperion are only nice to you because they are afraid that you will go all crazy on them which is likely. TNTT chose me as his best friend and Imperion (don't even go there ) Trust me, no jealousy on my part what so ever

    See this is what always happens. You roast me beyond belief and I crack up, rep you, and then give up cause I can't ever win against you.

    I'm just interested because you were going on about having half-cast babies with Imperion or whatever (on my blog as well GTFO) so I was like hmmmmmm.. :holmes:
