I get an annual travelcard loan from work. It’s great, because it works out cheaper than buying a monthly one and I also get a gold travelcard which makes me a SUPER SPECIAL passenger and I get GOLD STANDARD treatment from the travel people. Actually, it’s just a record card. My travelcard is an Oyster, and I love it.
Anyway. Last year, the fool who gave me my travelcard managed to print the record card, my lovely gold record card, upside-down. Upside down! I had to live with that for a whole year! Any time someone wanted to check my ticket, it was a bit embarrassing. I was looking forward to the new card because – yes! finally! – I would have a proper-way-up record card. I took my travel warrant along to Liverpool Street and eagerly awaited my new, sensible, neat record card.
Yeah, they printed this one upside-down, too.
