Mission: Impossible
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find out the price of a train season ticket.

First, I give details of a fake journey and cough a lot at the automated response system so it lets me talk to a real person.
Virgin Trains: Sorry, we don't sell those.
Me: But it's for your trains.
Virgin Trains: You need to speak to the station.
Me: Can you give me the number?
Virgin Trains: No, they are ex-directory.
Well, thanks for that...

Network Rail: We're the infrastructure operator...
Me: ...but... (over the recorded message, pleading for help)
Network Rail: If you're not sure who that is then phone National Rail Enquiries...
Me: Not on your life...
Public transport - its easy and efficient...

Current Mood: annoyed annoyed

I commiserate (or a word spelt similarly)
having suffered the misery of trying to find stops near place X using pti.org.uk which only works if you know EXACTLY where you want to go to an from!!

As to tickets, I'd suggest going to the station and asking for one.
Then saying "ah no, not just now thanks" once they have agreed a price.

Erm! oh yes. "Arr."

Well something to make you smile that this has just reminded me of....

My mother was on a train with her friend & the friends six year old grandaughter.

The train pulled into a station & loads of people got on and sat quietly for the train to pull out.

In a high voice the six year old said....

"Grandma I see a virgin"

So how do you explain to a six year old why the rest of the passengers have just burst out laughing to that remark?
