I almost forgot about my rather ace conversation with a train guy on friday night. it goes something like this:

cal: what's going on? man: nothing c: why are there so many people here? m: oh, because some trains are delayed c: so is the 18:55 going to be delayed? m: let me see...no, it's on time c: is that it over on platform 2? m: oh no, that's the 18:25 c: so the 18:55 isn't in yet? m: no c: but it'll be on time? m: yes c: it takes about 20 minutes for a train to be cleaned once it's come in, right? m: yes, 15 to 20 minutes c: then about 5-10 minutes for people to board? m: yes c: and it's now 18:45? m: yes c: and the 18:55 hasn't arrived yet? m: yes c: but it wont be late? m: no cal leaves to use other train line
