It’s like being on a cattle truck, so bad is the service.

Yes, it’s wonderful having a Senior Citizen’s Pass.

All rather reminiscent of the joke my late father used to tell:-

The i newsletter cut through the noise

Customer: “A pound of tomatoes, please.”

Greengrocer: “Certainly, madam. That’ll be thruppence, please.”

C: “Thruppence? The greengrocer down the road is selling them at tuppence a pound!”

G: “Well, I suggest that you go and buy your tomatoes from him.”

C: “He hasn’t got any.”

G: “Fine. When I haven’t got any, I’ll be selling them at tuppence a pound as well.”
