Take two announcers

Compare and contrast

Coming home on the DLR yesterday (I only take it one stop, but it really is a bloody civilised way to travel and if you sit at the front of the train you can pretend you're driving it - there are no real drivers), my very polite guard/person who opens the doors (what are people on the DLR called?) said:

"Thank you for travelling with us today. We are now at Bank and I'd like to wish you a safe onward journey on your way home. Have a nice evening".

DVBoy sent me an email where he heard the following at Warren Street station saying that Piccadilly Circus was closed "cos of a fire alarm or summink".

It's like comparing Vicky Pollard to Joanna Lumley.
