I had to pay £20 to stand in an overcrowded train becasue the one ticket machine at the station was 10 deep in wellie and hotpant clad festival goers, and the same week the station decides to go on a money grab and enforce penalty fares for everyone buying tickets at the destination station.
Just feeling like I paid a fine for the fact that their system can't cope when people actualy use it.
It's not like you can dodge a fare anyway with barriers at the station, its purely a money grabbing excercise!
2. I stopped as some lights and an elderly lady said thank you.
3. I was doing some intervals, 1/2 mile stretch from one roundabout to the lights I stopped at. After the lady said thanks a white mini-van stopped on my left as I was turning right. A nice lady in her 30's said "YOU WERE GOING 30 MILES'AN'HOUR". I thought ere we go (in mind "it is a 30mph limit") waiting for the next line to 'ave a go at me. She said it again in amazement. Then "I couldn't believe how fast you were going". I was rather taken aback that someone you say something complimentary in rush hour traffic!!. I said "I was training for next weekends ride". Then cycled away badly as couldn't get my foot in the right pedal 😉
