    What happened to the days when if you wanted a paper you just go to the pile of metros and grab one yourself?!
    Now there are these fellas outside the stations literally forcing you take one... even if you allready have a paper in your hand these fellas in purple bibs are still trying to shove a paper in your face WTF as if commuting isnt stressful enough! :mad:

    Shit loads of waste as well, not enough recycling bins for em.

    Surprised they get away with it.

    Why dont they just cut out the middle man and just plonk them directly on the train seats as they always end up there anyway for the next person to pick up. Feel sorry for the poor buggers and the end of the day who must go around scraping up thousands of copies of metro from the carridge floors

    counted yesterday, from Kings Cross Thameslink to Kings Cross main station and onto the train, a walk of about 4 minutes max I get a approached by about 6 of them, some standing right next to each other. Some of them even see you taking a paper from one of their colleagues and still try and force a paper onto you :tocktock: :tocktock:
