Human Nature

So I'm trying to get home from seeing Rob XPT the other night, and both the circle and hammersmith&city lines are down. I.E. I can't get home. So I stop by a cab company only to be hailed as I press their 'call cab' button.

'Where are you going to?'

'Liverpool Street.'

'Ten Pounds'.

Now by this stage I've had a few drinks, so I'm more than happy to cough up for the fact I'm *finally* on my way home. So I get into the back.

'So, where *is* liverpool street? I've not been doing this long" he says.

'Turn right here and I'll give you directions' I sigh. 'Have you got a map?'


So, I pay a tenner to mapread myself to a station, using my own map.

And, do you know what? I was still happy just to be going home.
