Down the tube

This morning I was going into work a little later than normal. I arrived at the Jubilee Line around 9am (so, about an hour later than normal). According to the irritating announcement "a good service" was operating on the Jubilee Line.

I got down to the platform to find passengers 8 deep at the doors and 4 minutes until the next train. When it arrived it was predictably packed to the gills. Decided to wait for the next one. Another 4 minutes. Still packed.

In the end I turned round, went to Stratford and caught a train back to London from there... North Greenwich now empty! Go figure.
