Does not commute

I’ve blown a circuit overnight with the somewhat disturbing result that every third word of my internal monologue is sleep.

This would have been “Does not compute” except that Thameslink advertised my usual 4-coach train as an 8-coacher causing about three hundred sad individuals who usually take the slighlty earlier semi-fast train to leave that one empty and wait for mine, which arrived – as it does every day – comprised of four coaches with standing room only.

It was briefly entertaining as furious small-minded sods berated powerless station staff as they gradually realised that what had promised to be a 90 second saving in their commuting time had become a fifteen minute delay. Mostly just annoying though and I’m running very late.
