Story 1 - Canteen
It was a school day, Tuesday and I was in the most boring Chemistry lesson doing coursework. Anyway, after the lesson I washed my hands (after dealing with Sodium Thiosulfate and HCl it was sensible to do so) and went downstairs to the canteen. I sat in there for about five minutes checking my Twitter feed and I looked up at the time, wondering why nobody was in the canteen with me. At that point I realised that it was not in fact lunch time but time for my fourth lesson. Yes, I had been wanting to eat lunch an hour early.
Sweating and red-faced I ran back upstairs and hurried into my Biology lesson. The teacher took no notice and I was lucky I din't get into any trouble. I missed none of the lesson to my relief, because it was just coursework writing anyway and we hadn't started yet. So that was story one.
Story 2 - SportsDirect
Story 3 - Bus ride
On the bus I went upstairs to find a seat to see that there were no double seats. As you may know, London buses consist of rows of seats, four in a row split down the middle by the aisle making two seats next to each window. There were two single seats occupied by a neighbour. I sat down at the nearest one because you cannot turn around and walk back downstairs. Oh no. That would be worse than just standing on the top deck.
So I sat down and about 10 seconds into the ride I notice that the man sitting next to me has some earphones in. He was a black man, tall (I'd say about 6' 4") and was huge. He also had his right hand on my seat which meant I could not sit fully on it. I then noticed he was not singing or humming a tune but must have had some sort of disorder because when the bus went over a bump, he burst out laughing and he was not talking to somebody on the phone because he had an MP3 in his ear, not a mobile. There you go. 3 awkward moments.
