Because I can

'R, look, I've a Tube application on my phone. It has the Tube map you can drag around and all sorts of features. Isn't it great?'

'Are we going to London?'

'No.'

I would have thought R would know me better after all these years. I love my Tube app.

  1. Fabulous! now you can go to London or Paris!!
    I would have loved one of those last year when I consistently boarded the wrong line in Paris - changed lines - got off - went back - start again - time wasted underground!!

  2. Better save than sorry! You never know when you need one. ;)

  3. We have been to both Dianne, but we didn't use the Metro in Paris. I am sure there would be an app for that. I found the Tube very easy to use.

    Quite so Peter.

  4. Peter is right! You may carry around the Tube application for 10 years, practise on it, perfect it and lust over it.

    Then one day.... whoooosh... you will be sitting in a Trivial Pursuit tournament in Melbourne and the question will be "What is the next Tube station after Golders Green, going north?" You will be the only person in Australia who could answer!!

  5. LOL I love Hels idea!
    You never know when you and R have to suddenly whisk yourselves off to London for a random week.

  6. Ah Hels, it so wasteful of brain space to carry around such trivia, but I do. I do know which bus to get to Cockfosters. I kept seeing it and for some reason, it stuck in my mind.

    Precisely Jayne and I will have my app at the ready.

  7. I agree, after all these years R should know you better.
    And I like Hels idea, maybe a similar question will come up at a quiz night or somehting.

  8. Maybe it will River. Mind you, some people are very devoted to their knowledge of the Tube.

  9. The tube map is a work of art in itself - no other public transport map like it. I lust after London too, so my 'R' (Love Chunks) wouldn't be in the least surprised if I downloaded this as well.

  10. Yet it keeps changing all the time Kath, as things change. One version that did not last long last year I think, was the Thames was omitted. It quickly got put back. That is how I oriented myself.

  11. Glad to see I'm not the only one who's obsessed with the tube. I have several tube maps spread around the house, including my treasured tube map mug.

  12. Ben, you reminded me that I have a Tube map stuck in a book somewhere, for ready reference. I think I would like a Tube mug. I might just go online and find one.
