3. If ‘TFL Live Updates’ tells you that the bus is due, it’s going to be at least another 10 minutes.

Unless you’re running late, in which case it will arrive exactly on time.

4. Realising the difference a mere two seconds can make when it comes to getting the tube.

Which is probably why you’ve become an expert at running up and down moving escalators.
