Overheard one side of a conversation on a the train back from Leeds last night. Normally shouty types annoy me. I hate hearing people talking loudly about themselves in public unless I am being paid to listen of course. This time though the bloke kept me amused. here's the best bit:

"No I left Leeds. I'm on my way to Manchester. No not on a plane. On a train. I know they have airports but the're not far enough apart. The planes probably go to other airports. It wouldn't be quicker. Yeah well the flying bit would but you have to check in and stuff."
