London Underground Interview Question

How would you reply?

I didn't quite know whether to laugh or cry when I saw the following question posted on
Yahoo! Answers. The guy below appears to be going for an interview at London Underground and needs help with the following question. I'm assuming that the applicant has slightly abbreviated the question:

Please help me pass london underground interview. 1,list action u wud take.2,xplain what u hope 2 achieve.?

imagine u are workin at d barrier of a london station.an elderly tourist wit limited english comes up 2 u.he is carryin a number of bags n he is able 2 comunicate that he is lost and needs to get 2 heathrow.
1, please list d actions that u would take
2, explain what u would hope 2 achieve through these actions

At the time of blogging - you have 4 days left to help the poor person out who also appears to have fairly limited English themselves. Also looking at their background or rather the only other question they've asked, maybe their other interest has affected their ability to type properly.

Any TfL staff reading this, if you end up interviewing him - please don't ask what else he thinks he can bring to the position.
