Shock! Horror! Amy Dicketts of Commute Blog talks to people *on the tube*. Here's who she get into conversation with on one day...
First up was a guy who definitely wins the dad of the year award for naming his children as his greatest triumph in life. Despite their cheeky ways, he couldn’t think of anyone he was more proud of. You just know he's the guy rocking matching Halloween outfits with his kids on the trick-or-treat rounds.
Although this pregnant women wasn’t yet a parent, she was already thinking about everything she hoped for for her child, and her answers were so heart-warming. Her stories about trying to get a seat on the tube were markedly less positive. Look out for the Baby on Board badges, people!
Another person feeling the familial love was this girl, who was lucky enough to have not one, but two Spanish grandmothers who had travelled all the way from her home country just to see how she was settling into life in the Big Smoke. While they were as different as north and south London, they both clearly had a lot of love for their adventurous granddaughter.
Speaking of adventure, this girl had come all the way from New Zealand for a slice of London life. If you ever find yourself recently dumped and on the tube (most likely weeping behind an old copy of The Metro) avoid this happy couple at all costs. Honestly, you’re unlikely to find two people more in love than this pair. And she’s killed a possum, so she’s not to be messed with.
Even the tube signs were getting in on the feel-good vibe in London this month. This uplifting quote was spotted at Clapham North station. There’s nothing quite like it for making a Monday morning feel less hideous.
Don’t worry, we haven’t all lost our minds. This girl said what many have been thinking.
