Dear East Coast trains,
My sincere apologies if this letter overheats, (a bit like your carriages it seems) but currently I am on one of your trains, travelling from Leeds to Kings Cross, wondering exactly how much weight I will lose on this 2 hour and 16 minute journey in carriage F as the aircon isn't working, AGAIN.
I assume that F stands for "Fucking broken" as every time I have travelled on the train between Leeds and Kings Cross I have either been stuck in carriage F, or hearing over the tannoy that the aircon in carriage F is once again broken and the carriage is overheating.
Perhaps it would be easier if you just announced when the aircon WAS working, as I'm sure you would save yourselves some time and effort, after all, IT'S BLOODY HOT IN HERE.
I don't even think you are allowed to transport animals across the country at the temperature I am currently experiencing on your service. Perhaps you could offer a hosing down at Kings Cross? I think my deodorant reached it's maximum limit about an hour ago.
"I'm bloody definite"
"Why don't you move?" I hear you ask.
Because not only is it me on this journey into the fires of hell, I have three children with me, and all the assorted luggage and electricals for the journey to keep the aforementioned children quiet on the journey. Everyone has taken up the other seats together and I cannot have my children spread out across carriages.
And also, it should be noted that if you are lucky enough to be in a carriage where the aircon is working, you can bet your fine arse that the plug sockets are not working.
You can be at room temperature, or you can plug stuff in....
So while I am sweating like a sinner in church, someone else is sweating that they have 1% battery and no way of charging their phone unless they want to melt away the pounds in carriage F.
East Coast Trains, you are not exactly cheap, so why are you being so cheap when it comes to keeping your trains comfortable for your customers?
Sweating like a piggily,
