People who want to argue the toss at railway station ticket offices. Many is the time when I have arrived with plenty of time and few people ahead of me in the queue, but have been held by some awkward git who just seems to be there for an argument. One African bloke actually tried to barter with the ticket office staff. He told them he had only paid 10 to get to London the previous week and would only pay that much. The normal fare is about 30 without a railcard.

On a similar note, when you buy a ticket from the ticket machines or from a member of staff with a hand held ticket machine at Northampton station, these do not usually work in the ticket barriers. Why?? They are selling you a faulty product.
Last week I brought a Travelcard but had to show it to a member of staff to get through the many barriers. At night there was no-one on the barriers at Euston Underground and I had 5 minutes to catch my train so I had to limbo under the wider barrier. Not good enough.

This thread is just like Room 101 isn't it?


I've had the same problem with tickets from the guards hand held machine not working in the barriers, apparently you are supposed to go to the ticket office when you get off (if it's open of course) and exchange it for a proper ticket. You couldn't make it up!

I would make a complaint about barriers at Euston being unstaffed, what if there had been an emergency?

People who include the word "amazing" in telling you about everything they do or did. This is usually the case with tv chefs. This also applies to so called celebrities on the panel of reality shows when they have just watched something.

There was a member of staff there but he wandered off just as I got there and I didn't have time to wait for his return. He should have left the barriers open until he got back.

I know somebody who works for Southeastern and the rule is that the barriers have to be staffed or left open and it should be the same on the tube.

The word 'empathetic' -it's 'EMPATHIC'!!!


In all the sources I've looked at today they have the same meaning.

'Could/Should of', instead of 'Could/Should have'


100 'upticks'!
