The bus was so packed that a lady fell over and accidentally kissed me. If you are that lady...How you doing? #tubestrike

Traffic's been crawling for over an hour, I'm on the verge of wetting myself for the first time since I was a kid. Suit's going to be ruined

On a packed bus to work. We're all singing Vera Lynn songs and invoking the spirit of The Blitz and reminiscing about The Olympics.

TFL have told slight porkies about limited service on Bakerloo! So I've embraced the Blitz spirit and caught a bus-no idea where it's going!
