Staff at London's St Pancras International train station have issued advice that could save the travelling public thousands of something in untold misery and disappointment.


"The words [pictured above] are nothing short of genius," one commuter told the Rake & Herald.

"Admittedly, they are part of a larger sign talking about escalator safety, but the fact remains that they have changed my life forever," he/she/it continued.

"It's like a blindfold has been removed from my eyes."

"The next time I want to go somewhere, I'll check out the right direction in advance and jolly well stick to it."

"I can't believe I never thought of this before."

However, not everybody has welcomed the new advice.

"It's just a shame that a) British trains are so crap and overpriced and b) this sign is yet another bloody order being barked at you by some nanny-state little Hitler," observed his/her/its identical twin Dandelion.

"I've got a good mind to get lost on purpose."

"F--king wankers."
