I had to go to Mansfield, near Nottingham today and I took the train from London. I got a cab outside Mansfield station and the driver was the chatty type.
Over the course of a fifteen minute ride, he told me what he and his mates did last weekend.
After work on the Friday, they drove from Mansfield to Brighton, where they had a good night out and a late meal. They stayed in a B&B and got up the next morning to find the weather a bit murky, so they decided to try Bournemouth.
Another night out and a B&B and on Sunday morning they drove to London, and spent the day seeing the sites. A third night out that evening, and a third B&B.
Up at 4:30 on Monday morning, and off up the M1 back to Mansfield. They were all at work by 9:00 am, showered, changed, breakfasted and ready for the day.
Hi FE what you experienced really winds me up , you bump into a person you not seen for a long time , they spend the next 15 minutes bragging about "their life" , eventually they look at their watch and say "oh god is that the time , must dash" , followed by the person shouting from a distance " nice meeting you"
I think to myself it may have been nice for you but not for me , I don't remember speaking.
Lets hope we don't meet again for another 5 years.
