New law on the tube for the Olympics

May 27, 2012 12pm in Random Ramblings,Travel | Comments (6)

I haven’t written in my blog for a while so I thought I’d post a picture I saw on the tube last week.  The first of these two stickers is obviously legitimate but for a while I also thought that the second one was too.  I thought “what a novel way to welcome people to London for the Olympics”.  But then I realised that was a bit stupid.  Although the sign is so professionally made, and it’s even spelled correctly.

I did a search on the internet, and it seems this sign has existed in London for almost four years… but this is the first time I saw it!

Peak hours may necessitate that you let other people sit on your lap

“Peak hours may necessitate that you let other people sit on your lap”

Thanks to my sister for pointing out the irony that I made a spelling mistake in the same sentence that I talked about spelling mistakes.

    OH MY GOD. Are they actually serious? I would rather walk from Ealing Broadway to Cockfosters in the snow with no shoes on. Ewww think of the stinky gross people on the tube, now think of them actually sitting on you. (And yes I just had to choose Cockfosters for my example, I haven’t laughed at that for a while. COCKFOSTERS!!!!)

    Don’t worry Dad, I’m sure the 20 stoner will let you sit on his (or her!) lap instead :)
