I am a passenger
Occassional regulars

From Highbury & Islington getting on a first capital connect service to Moorgate with me (3rd carriage, back set of doors) - a man who wears a waistcoat (grey today with a blue shirt) and uses enough brilliantine on his hair that it appears to be solid. Its parted in the middle and slicked down to within an inch of its life - slightly too long at the back. He has a head like a thunderbird puppet. I bet he doesn't go to the barber very often - they'd be telling him lots of alternative ways to coif his hair. Can't imagine what his pillows must be like. Wonder if he sleeps in a hairnet and never rolls around so his face doesn't get greased by the residue...Ugh.
