    Unfortunately my shift on Xmas Eve evening overran, so when I finished there was no public transport to take me back home. I was stuck at work on Xmas day and Boxing day

    Anyone else had the same trouble?

    Wow really? That sounds awful

    I remember my Dad telling me about one year when he was working on Xmas Eve and some guy had fallen asleep on the tube and ended up on completely the wrong side of London. All the tubes had stopped running then though so the guy had to pay out for a crazy expensive taxi.
