People waiting for a train knowing that when it arrives it will be rammed full like every other peak time train on the Sheffield to Manchester line. This mainly occurs in the Marple/ Romiley areas where there is an inversely proportional relationship of number of passengers to size of train. e.g. 100 passengers / 1 carriage containing 30 seats. This leads to them getting on the train (alighting) and standing up for the whole journey - standalight!!
Romiley station was full of standalights awaiting the 8:20 train from Sheffield. The previous train had been canceled and the thirty year old mini-bus with rolling stock arrived, steamy windowed and fit to bursting. "there's no way we are getting a seat on that baby" "if we wait for the next one I'll be late for work again. The only thing I'll be waiting for then is the sack"
A game played by employers just before the festive season. The message "santas sack and yourname" is texted by phone to a predetermined number owned by the company. The cost of these texts is £1 including VAT. The person with the least number of texts loses there job.
"The company has made massive profits this year so to celebrate we are going to have a bit of fun by laying a few people off. Text Santas Sack with your name to 65325, calls cost £1 each. Lines close 24th December. The members of staff with the lowest revenue get sacked in January"
"Happy Xmas Everyone"
