Sorry to hear of your travails Jan.
Personally I normally aim for the rank at London Bridge when I first come out to start work, but in exceptional circumstances like this weekend when there is no access to the station, I have found that the wait for a fare in Tooley Street
is not worth it, so I carry on to Liverpool Street station instead.
People are unaware of exactly where the temporary rank is, and amble down to B.H.S. and hail a passing taxi, which is their prerogative, but no good to the guys waiting for a fare in Tooley Street
Or they get to the Tooley Street
rank, get in and then cry their eyes out because they are sitting in heavy traffic because of the road work situation.
I can do without that, the static traffic caused by the closure is not my fault, and if I wanted to listen to someone moaning I'd stay at home and listen to the enemy within!
