A WOMAN has booked a train seat reservation online, safe in the knowledge that it is probably meaningless.
Kate Morris was invited to select a seat reservation when purchasing overpriced tickets.
She said: “It’s charming when the website pretends that I could actually get a seat reservation. We both went through the dance of selecting the type of chair, choosing which way it faces and whether or not I want a table.
“For a second I almost believed its empty promises.”
A Network Rail spokesman said: “Part of the thrill of travelling with us is that you just don’t know whether you will be standing, sitting or crouching next to the bogs.”
Morris’s train was later cancelled due to a shortage of something.
