I guess this boils down to what you think is a realistic target.
Re: [villahopper] Random & Pointless Things That Really Annoy You
I, unlike most people on here I would guess, have worked in a ticket office. I know that sometimes it can take 5 minutes to issue one ticket once you have got all the information from the passenger. In my opinion at certain times 5 minutes isn't a lot of time when you have a queue of maybe 10 people waiting.
But then again I know it can be frustrating waiting in a queue. But sometimes thats just the way it is. Not just at railway stations, but in supermarkets, post offices, hell even at football games.
Do they get the same grief, no they don't because the railway is an easy target because most people enjoy having a pop.
Just a suggestion here but if you are going to catch a train and you think the ticket office may be a little busy why not leave yourself a bit of extra time. Or is it because the GUIDELINES say 5 mins you think that is gospel and you will get away with it.
Even if you can't buy a ticket at the station all you have to do is approach the guard and they will sell you one 99 times out of a 100.
I have worked in a ticket office, I have been a guard, and now I am a driver. I know all the tricks people try on to avoid paying a fare. I am also human and I know sometimes things don't go to plan so you make allowances
