Re: [villahopper] Random & Pointless Things That Really Annoy You
I wouldn't really know as I am neither a traffic warden or a traffic warden's boss. But I do work on the Railway and I know there a quite a few guards who don't exactly bust a gut at work and they are still employed so can't be that bad. Although to be fair guards do have the rule book on their side when it comes to revenue protection
In fairness most guards (certainly on SE Trains) seem quite reasonable, it's the travelling teams of revenue inspectors that are the problem.
I've got onto the high speed train to St Pancras before without a ticket because the long queue would have meant I missed the train and I purchased a ticket from the onboard guard/conductor without any problem at all although they have advised me that if a revenue team got on there could be trouble.
I've also read articles in local papers about over zealous revenue staff some of whom are dressed in a very similar uniform to police officers, presumably to fool people into thinking that they are police officers?
