David discovered that being all alone on the Tube was far more uncomfortable than being on a crowded train.
So where did everyone go? I was on a crowded tube train a few weeks ago. As I boarded, I mumbled a moan to myself about how hot and crowded it was before losing myself in my phone to catch up on emails and texts. I was so engrossed I didn’t even notice what had happened until the announcement for my stop brought me back into the conscious world. Other than the driver, there wasn’t one other human being on the whole train or the platform and this was midday! It was very weird being all alone…almost scary. I rushed off the train and up the escalator saying to myself, ‘be careful what you wish for!’
