The waiting game


20 April 2006

Years ago, as a student, I was at a small train station in Scotland, swearing under my breath whilst waiting for a train to finally deign to turn up.

It was winter, very early in the morning and bloody freezing, and I wanted to warm up in the waiting room rather than stand on the platform. However, there was only one such room and it had a big sign on the door saying This Waiting Room is for Women Only.

I guess that was so the poor darlings didn’t get scared by having an awful male within 50-metres of them.

I arrogantly strode in and sat down in the waiting room anyway, although as it was completely empty I unfortunately didn’t get the chance to piss any women off.

At least it was warm though.
