The Bleedin' Obvious

Bleedin' Obvious
My congratulations to the Nannys of Brighton station who surpassed themselves yesterday, with their warning about the bleedin' obvious.

I arrived at Brighton station at around 6:30 last night (it was wet and windy, welcome to England!) to be greeted by the following announcement (on top of the usual "I am sorry for the delay...") being repeated over the station's speaker system:

"Please be aware that it is raining and, as such, the concourse will be wet etc...".

For fark's sake, it was well obvious that it was raining (bucket loads to be precise)!

In the event that the concourse becomes wet, why not simply swab the decks and mop it up?

  1. Britain; a nation of children!!

    I just wonder how Nanny and her supporters think we all managed to survive for decades without such "helpful" warnings from our ever watching, never off duty Nanny.

    Oh BTW Ken, look out for leaves on the path as its autumn, they may be slippery. ;-)

  2. I wonder how long it will be before we see "helpful" information signs on the high street similar to what we now see on the motorway (e.g. "wear a seatbelt", "don't drink and drive", "etc").

    We might see:

    "Beware of slippery pavements in wet weather"
    "Wearing high heeled shoes may result in injury"
    "Do not let strangers talk to your children"
    "Leave granny locked up at the 'care' home for her own good"

    etc etc.

    I'm SO glad that Nanny is there to tell me these things! I'm sure I'd never work it out by myself that conditions are likely to be wet when it is raining!

  4. Warning: Water is falling from the sky in the form of "raindrops." These "raindrops" -- small, globular accretions of atmospheric moisture -- may accumulate on level pedestrian surfaces, exposed stairwells, and even paved areas, presenting travel hazards and increased risk of accident. Please exercise extreme caution when traversing such areas. Upon leaving the station, you may want to wait for a bus or call a cab so that a professional driver can cope with these conditions for you. The mixture of wet traffic surfaces and low night-time visiblity is particularly deadly. If you set out under such conditions, do so at your own risk.

    --Have a Nice Day!!!
