I get the train into work and there's this ticket seller dude, a big fat lad. When people ask for a ticket he also replies something like "That's your £1.95 then". Always "That's your...". He's like a caricature.
Anyway, I was buying a weekly ticket and got the "That's your £10.50, then" whilst he was fannying about with the machine. I handed him my switch card and he said, rather indignantly "Oh you want to pay by card after all". After all fucking what, I never indicated anything to the contrary. I assume he had input "cash" into his wee machine and was somehow annoyed at me for this.
I just sent him on his way saying "I'll buy it at the station when we get there, mate". He agreed that was probably best as he had all sorts of other things to do, like opening the door. No need for him to get stressed out on my account by fucking doing his job or anything.
