This must be what commuting was like in the 50s.
no Train Guys, no pushy Apprentice candidate types with 90s girl band make up on, no speccy IT guys unpacking their triathlon gear
just a nice, peaceful journey in with sensible people and lots of space.
now for empty office Friday. Love it
But Fence Foal, why are you going in when your colleagues are not th... Ah.
I only had two e-mails overnight which means most of the world has packed up for the weekend already.
I love London on Fridays now, not that I am ever there.
Did you take your Accenture London 2023 Summit rucksack?
Hope the post room is quiet today and that Davos does not boss you around too much m6.
People love working for me Bazza, whether the post room staff to the most senior EQT boss
Captain. Leader. Legend.
Very pleasant stroll to the garden office.
And commuting in the ‘50’s was not that pleasurable, as trains would be full of smokers, and wearing a 3 piece suit in summer without air conditioning could be pretty sticky.
yes, but the huge probability is that you too would have been a smoker so would not have minded.

apro pros of which I watching some old time football from the 60s last night, the older players (presumably in their 30s) looked like they were in their 50s with bald heads and gnarled faces - presume this was the impact of everybody smoking 30 woodbines a day.
Couple of Train Guys/speccy IT types getting triggered
sorry guys, have a campachoochoo on me
Bit before my time, but I have been on many an old BR rolling stock from the ‘50’s on heritage lines.
Compared to the spartan upholstery in modern carriages they were immensely more comfortable.
One of my first memories is when I was about 2, of standing on a train platform holding a carton of Ki-ora, with my parents when we were going on holiday to the South Coast.
The incoming steam train pulled in and I was engulfed in a cloud of steam coming from the pistons by the huge wheels. Terrifying, but thrilling…
Marshall, it seems to be an iron rule of train travel, at least in this country, that each iteration of long distance train becomes less comfortable. The old intercity carriages dating from the 70s were extremely comfortable compared to hard mostly airline style seating of today.
Marshall NOT a crow.
