Chalk up another banner morning for Transport for London: my train to Waterloo arrived seven minutes late, meaning I missed the connecting Bakerloo Line tube I'd intended to take to Edgware Road. The one I ended up taking was also a minute delayed. In all, I arrived nine minutes later than I should have, which adds up to £22.50.
While we're on the subject of delayed gratification, I would like to meet the person who came up with the idea of hotdesking and have some very strong words with him (or her). TfL's transport lottery often means I spend upwards of 20 minutes trying to find somewhere to park myself for the day. What's so wrong with having the same bloody desk every day is what I want to know. I swear, I'm just going to buy a desk of my own and bring it from home every morning. It'd be a damn sight easier!
And finally, an update from yesterday. I stopped off on the way home for a couple of drinks and a pub quiz with friends (we didn't win, OK? Let's just leave it at that...). Two-minute delay from Edgware Road to Waterloo. Stopped for a quick bite. Train from Waterloo to Clapham Junction was three minutes' delayed. Later, the bus from Kingston to Hampton Court was a minute delayed. Total: six minutes. £15.
UPDATE: train from Waterloo to Hampton Court delayed by three minutes: £7.50.
