Boy is thrilled to have missed the train – but I laugh out loud when he reveals the reason why

You’ve got to keep a level head in stressful situations and think over if you’re really doing what you should be doing – this is one such story.

Young Gordon was with his parents and they were taking refreshments in the bar at Reading station when they heard a whistle. The three of them rushed out of the bar onto the platform only to discover that they had just missed the train.

“The next train is in one hour,” intoned the stationmaster.

The three went back into the bar. The parents had another drink, Gordon had a coke. Again they heard a whistle, rushed out and discovered the train pulling away.

“Next one is sixty minutes from now,” grunted the stationmaster.

An hour later, Gordon, with his mum and dad, raced out onto the platform, and his parents leaped onto the train as it pulled away. The boy was left standing on the platform and began to laugh uproariously.

“Your parents just left you,” said the stationmaster. “Why are you laughing?”

Gordon smiled, “They only came to see me off!”
