Welcome to Essex

with 4 comments

This evening, on a train back to Leigh on Sea from London, I got my first real taster of what it means to be back in Essex.

A drunken man got on the train that left London at 9pm (so it wasn’t even the vomit comet*), and proceeded to loll about in the doorway muttering to himself.  A short while later these mutterings turned into shouted expletives – which of course were ignored by the rest of us in the carriage in the typical British fashion.

As the train pulled into the next station, the drunken man then took his willy out and proceeded to pee all over the inside of the door of the train.  He then opened the door and got out.

Yes, this is truly what it means to be back in Essex.

*The vomit comet is typically the last train that leaves central London for deepest darkest Essex at around half past midnight – transporting many a drunken city worker home.  I think the name speaks for itself.

  1. How interesting. I haven’t seen a man peeing in a railway carriage for decades. Did you get a good look at the willy? 🙂

    There’s an award waiting for you here:

    • Oh how lovely! Thank you for the award 🙂 Presumably I can pass it on as well?

      ha – I managed to keep my eyes averted!

  2. Many of us take our drinking to depravity such as this. If we indulge even a little, there is no limit to how low we can go.

    This guy was probably an alcoholic who at one point in his life, lived and behaved significantly better than the display you saw.

    Normal drinkers stop before they get to levels like this. We alcoholics dont stop even when we do. We cross a line and our volition to control our drinking and the power of the will become insufficient.

    Sadly, this episode may merely a stopping point on his continual journey downward.

    Only few find recovery from the vortex of alcoholism. Sad really. But there but by the grace…

    • Yes, this guy was definitely out of control. Thanks for the words of wisdom Chaz 🙂
