“Boss! Boss!”

“Yes, driver?”

“I can’t drive my train. I need to be sent home.”

“Why’s that?”

“I’ve just been watching Dr Who and they showed Daleks in the tunnels and now I’m too scared to go down there. I think I might have to go off with stress for a bit.”

“I see. You know, I once had a driver off with stress. His pet rat had died.”


“Yes, six weeks he was off.”

“I don’t think I can top that. I’ll just be off picking up my train.”

“Bye then.”
